Holotype, male (Fig. 83a). Length 2.95 mm. Color black; antenna and tarsi ferruginous. Body ovate; in dorsal aspect almost without constriction between pronotum and elytron; in profile evenly convex. Rostrum in basal half with distinct median ridge and pair of submedian ridges, furrows with sparse rows of yellowish scales; apically weakly punctate, sparsely setose. Pronotum densely punctate-reticulate. Elytra dorsally with striae deeply incised forming well-defined furrows; intervals each with one secondary furrow of fused elongate punctures; laterally subglabrous, sparsely punctate. Femora somewhat widened, with distinct anteroventral ridge, edentate. Metafemur dorsally sparsely squamose with silvery scales; with weakly denticulate dorsoposterior edge; subapically with stridulatory patch. Metatibia apically with uncus, without premucro. Abdominal ventrite 5 with shallow depression, densely punctate, with dense suberect setae. Aedeagus (Fig. 83b) apically angulate, subglabrous; complex transfer-apparatus symmetrical; ductus ejaculatorius basally swollen, with indistinct bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 2.94–3.06 mm. Female rostrum in apical half slender, dorsally subglabrous, punctate, posteriorly with furrows. Female abdominal ventrite 5 densely punctate, with sparse recumbent scales, medially with weak swelling.
