This species belongs to the clypealis species group ( Brailovsky 2014) and can be easily distinguished from the other species of the genus by the short labium reach- ing at most to middle of the third abdominal sternum, the straight lateral margins of the pronotum, the acute humeral angles, and the lanceolate hind tibial dilations, clearly expanded without deep emarginations and occu- pying 65% length of the hind tibiae ( Allen 1969).
