Metafemur with crenulate anteroventral ridge terminating with small tooth; subapically with stridulatory patch and transverse row of denticles. Metatibia in basal half with dorsal edge denticulate. Abdominal ventrite 5 flat, subapically with shallow pit. Penis (Fig. 83b) with body in profile markedly curved ventrad; in dorsal aspect sides basally concave, before apex subparallel; apex medially with small rounded extension; apodemes 1.6 × as long as body; ductus ejaculatorius without bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 3.06–3.44 mm. Female rostrum dorsally with pair of lateral furrows, and pair of more shallow submedian furrows; epistome simple.

This epithet is based on the Latin adjective singularis (alone) and refers to the fact that no other Trigonopterus species could be found on the type locality.
Trigonopterus singularis Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 321”.
