Body subovate; in dorsal aspect with marked constriction between pronotum and elytron; with distinct constriction in profile. Rostrum basally with pair of indistinct submedian ridges; at middle with marked, anteriorly hollow protrusion, posteriorly with median tooth and pair of lateral teeth; between protuberance and epistome relatively flat, subglabrous, microreticulate; epistome at middle with dorsoposteriad directed horn, laterally with pair of denticles. Pronotum coarsely punctate-reticulate, each puncture with one clavate suberect scale; with indistinct subapical constriction. Elytra with striae deeply impressed, each with row of suberect clavate scales; intervals subcarinate, microreticulate. Metafemur subapically with stridulatory patch. Abdominal ventrite 5 transversely impressed, with sparse coarse punctures. Penis (Fig. 74b) with sides of body subparallel; apex rounded; apodemes 1.8 × as long as body; transfer apparatus digitiform, confluent with basally sclerotized and swollen ductus ejaculatorius; subapically ductus ejaculatorius with indistinct bulbus.
