Antenna clavate; ADOs in antennomeres 6–10; antennomeres of specimen from Madagascar, 15°11.18’S 49°36.54’E, in following proportions: 10:5:15:7:6:5.5: 5.5:5.5:5:10; antennomeres of holotype in following proportions: 10:4:12:5.5:5:5:5:5:5:9. Head excavated, shiny, unsculptured; frontal line complete; occipital carina absent; temple distinct; head of specimen from Madagascar, 15°11.18’S 49°36.54’E, with POL = 0.5; OL = 1.5; OOL = 7; head of holotype with POL = 1; OL = 2; OOL = 6. Palpal formula 5/3 or 6/3 (5/ 3 in holotype; 6/ 3 in specimen from Madagascar, 7 km W Ranomafana). Pronotum shiny, unsculptured, crossed by strong transverse impression. Mesoscutum shiny, unsculptured, with two large lateral pointed apophyses ( Fig. 178BView FIGURE 178).
