Body subovate; in dorsal aspect and in profile with distinct constriction between pronotum and elytron. Rostrum rugose-punctate, sparsely setose with recumbent mesad directed setae. Pronotum with distinct subapical constriction; disk longitudinally rugose-punctate; sparsely setose. Elytra with striae deeply impressed; each puncture with inconspicuous seta; intervals weakly costate, subglabrous; sutural interval more distinctly raised; apex extended ventrad, slightly beak-shaped. Meso- and metafemur ventrally weakly dentate. Metafemur with denticulate dorsoposterior edge, subapically without stridulatory patch. Abdominal venter excavated. Abdominal ventrites 4 simple; ventrite 5 flat, ferruginous. Aedeagus (Fig. 82b) with apex extended, bent to the left; transfer apparatus short, spiniform; basal orifice ventrally with rim; apodemes short; ductus ejaculatorius without bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 1.43–1.96 mm. Female rostrum dorsally subglabrous, sparsely punctate. Abdominal ventrite 3 of females with flattened process projecting over retracted, subglabrous ventrites 4–5; process of ventrite 3 shaped like a flattened thistle-leaf with one long median spine and two shorter spines on each side.
