Prosternum as long as wide, widest at one-third length. Elytra longer than wide (Fig. 1J). Hind wings fully developed. Meso- metaventrites trapezoidal, longer than wide. Tergite IV with pair of transverse patches of microtrichia reaching middle. Median lobe of male genitalia divided with acute lateral spine at two-thirds length, major lobe subtruncate, minor lobe deeply bifurcate and with small tubercles (Fig. 3J).
