Holotype, male (Fig. 29a). Length 1.70 mm. Color of antenna, tarsi, tibiae, and rostrum ferruginous; head and pronotum black; elytra black, with ferruginous patches near base of intervals 2–4, continued to apex with irregular patches on intervals 1–4 to apex. Body subovate; in dorsal aspect and in profile with distinct constriction between pronotum and elytron. Eyes large. Rostrum punctate, without distinct longitudinal ridges; laterally with rows of cream-colored scales. Pronotum densely punctate-reticulate; with few scattered cream-colored scales; each puncture containing one brownish seta. Elytra with striae deeply impressed, intervals costate, with scattered white scales. Femora ventrally edentate, subapically constricted. Tibial uncus simple, curved. Metafemur subapi- cally with stridulatory patch. Aedeagus (Fig. 29b) with sides of body sinuate, converging; apex extended, pointed, curved ventrad; transfer apparatus compact, symmetrical; ductus ejaculatorius basally swollen, without bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 1.63–1.86 mm. Ferruginous color of elytra more or less extensive. Female rostrum dorsally subglabrous, laterally punctate.
