Holotype, male (Fig. 3a). Length 2.04 mm. Color black; legs and antenna ferruginous. Body subglobose; in dorsal aspect with weak constriction between pronotum and elytron; with more distinct constriction in profile. Rostrum in basal half with 3 ridges posteriorly continued to and uniting on forehead; apical half scabrous; epistome smooth, forming indistinct transverse ridge. Pronotum punctate-rugose, interspaces between punctures forming longitudinal wrinkles; with distinct subapical constriction. Elytra subglabrous, striae deeply impressed, intervals costate; apex extended ventrad, beak-shaped. Femora edentate. Metafemur with denticulate dorsoposterior edge, subapically without stridulatory patch. Abdominal venter steeply flexed dorsad, concealed in elytral capsule. Aedeagus (Fig. 3b) with apex medially pointed; body in apical half with broad depression visible in lateral aspect; in basal half with x-shaped sclerite; subglabrous, with sparse indistinct setae; transfer apparatus markedly flagelliform, longer than body, curled, pointing apicad.
