Diagnostic description.

Holotype, male (Fig. 47a). Length 2.01 mm. Color of antennae and tarsi ferruginous, remainder black. Body in dorsal aspect with marked constriction between pronotum and elytron; with distinct constriction in profile. Rostrum with pair of dorsolateral furrows, medially coarsely punctate-rugose; dorsal profile at middle with angulation; epistome with transverse, subangulate ridge. Pronotum with indistinct subapical constriction; disk coarsely punctate-rugose, sparsely setose; in basal half with pair of sublateral, kidney-shaped impressions; with indistinct median ridge. Elytra with striae deeply impressed, each with row of slender, suberect scales; intervals costate-carinate, subglabrous; apex narrow, rounded. Meso- and metafemur each with small tooth, profemur simple, relatively long. Metafemur subapically with stridulatory patch. Abdominal ventrite 5 subbasally at middle swollen; in apical half with round depression; coarsely punctate. Penis (Fig. 47b) with sides of body subparallel; apex rounded, medially with sparse setae; transfer apparatus flagelliform, subequal to body; apodemes 2.3 × as long as body; ductus ejaculatorius with indistinct bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 1.71-2.06 mm. Color of elytra ferruginous to black. Female rostrum dorsally in apical half subglabrous, with sparse minute punctures; epistome simple. Pronotum in females and in small males relatively narrow, in large males wider. Elytra in females narrower, humeri evenly rounded; large males with humeri more distinctly, subangularly projecting laterad, in small males similar to females; intervals weakly costate, in larger specimens markedly costate or carinate.
