Frontal vitta at base of antennae 0.9­1.0 times as wide as fronto­orbital plate anteriorly. Ocellar setae present but fine; outer vertical setae present; inner vertical setae absent. Face black with grey pruinosity. Parafacial black with grey pruinosity, bare, as wide as first flagellomere. Lower margin of face projecting, visible in profile, brown, grey pruinose. Vibrissa well differentiated; intervibrissal distance 1.3­1.4 times distance between vibrissa and eye on same side; facial ridge with bristles on lower 1/4. Gena black with grey pruinosity; hairs white; height 0.12 times eye height. Lunule black and shining; sublunular bulla indistinct. Antenna pedicel yellow or brown; first flagellomere black, 1.1­ 1.2 times as long as pedicel; arista thickened on basal 0.4. Length of oral opening 2 times its width. Occiput flattened, white pruinose; hairs black. Palpus brown.

THORAX. Mesoscutum black shining, without pruinosity, with fine black hairs. 0+1 acrostichal seta; 0(1)+1(2) dorsocentral setae; 2 postpronotal setae; presutural supra­alar seta present, but fine; 0 postsutural intra­alar seta; 2 notopleural setae; 1 supra­alar seta; 2 postalar setae.
