Diagnosis:

The clypeus with a pair of long and strong prominent teeth is unique in the Neotropical Osorius species.   Clypeal teeth are found in some other species, but distinctly shorter and narrower.

Description:

Length: between 13.5 and 17.0 mm. Colour: totally black.

Head :: 3.0 mm long, 3.0 mm wide; distinctly and moderately sparse punctation; on average distance between punctures slightly wider than diameter; microsculpture distinct; netlike reticulate; surface scarcely shiny; anterior edge with a pair of long prominent teeth; in lateral aspect; anterior edge in front of eyes and lower dorsal edge forming a more or less rectangular angle; edge in front of eyes with four granular setiferous punctures; a supraocular area with seven granular punctures; on disc with four setae.

Antennae: antennomeres 4 to 10 more or less quadrate.

Pronotum: 2.5 mm long, 3.2 mm wide; widest at anterior angles; sides distinctly narrowed to the posterior angles; in front of posterior angles with short slight emargination; posterior angles forming a rectangular angle; surface sparsely punctate; distance between punctures on average more than twice as wide than diameter; microsculpture similar as on head; netlike reticulate; surface scarcely shiny; prosternum with ventral prominence at anterior edge.

Elytra: 2.0 mm long, 3.1 mm wide; with relatively large and dense punctures; distance between punctures not wider than diameter of punctures; surface slightly shiny; ground sculpture coriaceous; metanotum without setae.

AedeagusAedeagus with a very short apical part ending in an obtuse apex.
