Holotype, male (Fig. 49a). Length 2.70 mm. Color of antennae ferruginous; legs dark ferruginous; remainder black. Body subovate, in dorsal aspect with weak constriction between pronotum and elytron; in profile dorsally convex. Rostrum with median ridge and pair of submedian ridges, intervening furrows each with sparse row of mesad directed scales; epistome with irregular transverse ridge. Pronotum coarsely punctate, reticulate-costate, with median costa; with sparse, recumbent scales. Elytra with dense, confused punctation; intervals flat, each with row of punctures; each puncture containing small recumbent scale; elytral apex subtruncate. Femora with simple anteroventral ridge, crenate in metafemur. Metafemur subapically with stridulatory patch. Abdominal ventrite 5 coarsely punctate, with sparse suberect scales. Penis (Fig. 49b) with sides of body subparallel; apex with median angulate extension; transfer apparatus with flagelliform median rod forming almost full coil; median rod projecting basad further than apicad, ca 2.7 × as long as body; apodemes 3.4 × as long as body; ductus ejaculatorius without bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 2.11–2.88 mm. Color of elytra dark ferruginous to black. Female rostrum in apical half slender, dorsally subglabrous, with submedian rows of punctures, laterally punctate-rugose; epistome simple.
