Distribution. This species has only been recorded from Zimbabwe ( Uvarov 1922). This is the first record from South Africa.

Remarks. This genus was erected by Uvarov (1922) based on its overall short and broad body shape, distinctly more rugose pronotum which is short with the hind angle obtuse and rounded. Elytra scarcely reaching the hind knees. The last abdominal segment with an obtuse angular emargination and a small black tooth like in the middle of the hind margin. Supra anal plate with only one submedian pair of tubercles and another pair at the basal angles. Cerci about twice as long as they are broad, with two obtuse teeth on the lower margin, with the apex obtuse. Elytra with smaller scattered brownish spots, and the inner side of the hind femora red, only partly blackened along the upper carina. This genus is stable, its revision is also not urgent.
