Pronotum finely, moderately sparsely punctate. Elytral strial punctures coarse, closely spaced; strial rows reach base on inner half of elytra. Interstrial punctures fine, moderately sparse. Metasternum moderately coarsely, irregularly punctate. Legs as in generic diagnosis. Abdominal sternites III–VIII weakly rugose, each with transverse row of small punctures on apical half. Median lobe of aedeagus ( Fig. 3 View Figures 1–6 ) evenly curved in lateral view; acute tips of paired apices inwardly curved. Parameres not extending beyond apex of median lobe. Armature of inverted internal sac as in Fig. 3 View Figures 1–6 .
