Diagnostic description

Holotype, male (Fig. 81a). Length 1.70 mm. Color black; tarsi and elytra dark ferruginous, antenna light ferruginous. Body subovate; in dorsal aspect and in profile with distinct constriction between pronotum and elytron. Eyes large. Rostrum punctate, surface microreticulate, densely squamose with cream-colored almond-shaped scales, without distinct furrows or ridges. Pronotum densely punctate; anterolaterally with scattered cream-colored scales. Elytra with striae distinct; intervals flat, subglabrous; stria 3 near base and apex with few scales. Femora edentate, dorsally with few scattered scales. Metafemur subapically with stridulatory patch. Metatibia simple; uncus hook-like extended, curved ventroposteriad. Aedeagus (Fig. 81b) with apodemes 2.0 X as long as body; sides of body weakly bisinuate; apex extended, pointed, markedly curved ventrad; transfer apparatus small, symmetrical; ductus ejaculatorius basally swollen, without bulbus.

Distribution

Simbu Prov. (Haia). Elevation: 1005–1220 m.

Biology

Mostly collected by beating foliage in montane forest.

Etymology

This epithet is based on a combination of the Latin nouns squama (scale) and rostrum (snout) and refers to the clothed rostrum of the males.
