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 densely punctate; striae distinct, consisting of small punctures; intervals with row of smaller punctures; near base and suture with additional, larger, interspersed punctures; surface dull, microgranulate, almost nude. Femora somewhat widened, edentate. Metafemur dorsally with sparse rows of silvery scales; with almost smooth dorsoposterior edge; subapically with stridulatory patch. Metatibia apically with uncus, without premucro. Abdominal ventrite 5 with dense erect setae. Aedeagus (Fig. 100b) apically rounded, subglabrous; complex transfer-apparatus containing flagellum slightly longer than body; ductus ejaculatorius basally swollen, with indistinct bulbus.
