Differential diagnosis. The largest member of the genus (ca. 1.72 mm), differentiated from other Adelphydraena   by the combination of large size, the chordate pronotum with markedly angulate lateral margins, the ovate elytra lacking serrate margins, the comparatively large metaventral plaques ( Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 ), and the aedeagus ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 5–6 ).
