Head. Anterior margin a full semicircle or less, usually evenly curved; tylus as long as juga, little narrowed apically; jugum usually with feeble to obsolete radiating rugae; ocelli moderately large; rostrum reaching between middle coxae. Pronotum. Anterior margin moderately, simply emarginated; side margins entire, nearly straight on middle third, lateral submarginal row of nine to twelve setigerous punctures; transverse impression submedian, obsolete to absent, impunctate or marked by irregular row of distinct punctures; anterior lobe impunctate or sometimes with few weak punctures laterally; posterior lobe impunctate or with few to a dozen punctures medially; propleuron distinctly alutaceous, punctured only in depression; prosternal carina less than half as high as rostral II. Scutellum with surface obsoletely alutaceous with numerous punctures discally, except across base and at extreme apex. Hemelytra. Corium and clavus distinctly alutaceous; clavus usually with one or two partial rows of punctures; mesocorium with one complete and a second partial or complete row of punctures; exocorium with numerous punctures usually more distinct than those of mesocorial disc; costa with two to six setigerous punctures.
