Diagnosis. Antennae greenish yellow without stains. Antennomer II longer than III. Pronotum with a light brown posterior band; posterolateral angles somewhat developed, more than eye width, and curved backwards ( Fig. 17AView FIGURE 17). Anterior part of scutellum with punctures located in dark spots barely larger than punctures ( Fig. 17AView FIGURE 17). Meso and metapleuron with a pair of faded brown rounded spots on base of each coxae ( Fig. 17BView FIGURE 17). The excavation of anterior lobes of metasternal process shallow, harboring fourth rostral segment and distal part of third ( Fig. 17BView FIGURE 17). Brown spots on apex of abdominal sutures faded ( Fig. 17BView FIGURE 17). Female ( Fig. 17CView FIGURE 17). Gonocoxites 8 posterior margin sinuous with outer angle slightly projected and rounded; imaginary line tangent to angles reaching middle of gonocoxites 9; gonocoxites 8 covering only base of gonocoxites 9; sutural border with a shallow distal excavation. Gonapophyses 8 barely visible. Laterotergites 9 with base shallowly excavated; apex slightly surpassing band uniting laterotergites 8. Male unknown.

Comments. This species was described from a quick examination of the type in the collection of The Natural History Museum in April, 2019 and photos taken with compact digital camera ( Fig. 17DView FIGURE 17). A comparative diagnosis will be made with new species that will be described in an upcoming paper.
