Diagnosis:

The species can be distinguished from similarly sized species by the deep, long and numerous supraocular striae. In contrast to the remarks given by SHARP (1876), size is variable and not differing from the related species. It can not be distinguished from O. alternansalternans   without study of the aedeagus. The aedeagus in O. stipesstipes   is long with an acute apex, whereas the aedeagus in O. alternansalternans   is shorter and the apex is obtuse and shortly curved.

Description:

Length: 12 – 17 mm. Colour: black.

Head :: 3 mm long, 3.8 mm wide; distinct and moderately sparse punctation; distance between punctures slightly wider than diameter of punctures; netlike reticulate microsculpture distinct; surface dull; anterior edge of clypeus distinctly denticulate; laterad with dense granular punctation; with several longitudinal supraocular and postocular striae behind eyes; disc with a pair of indistinct circular depressions; in lateral aspect, in front of eyes with three granular setiferous punctures; supraocular space with many granular setiferous punctures.

Antennae: with 3 rd antennomere slightly longer than 2 nd; antennomeres 4 to 6 more or less quadrate; subsequent antennomeres slightly wider than long.

Pronotum: 2.8 mm long, 3.9 mm wide; distinct, but moderately dense punctation; distance between punctures on average two times wider than diameter; anterior angle denticulate and prominent; isodiametric microsculpture distinct; surface dull.

Elytra: 3.7 mm long, 3.9 mm wide; with numerous, coriaceous, longitudinal striae.

Aedeagus pear-shaped with a moderately long apical part ending in an acute apex.
