Diagnosis: The species resembles O. bicolor   and O. lewisi   in size and punctation. It can be easily differentiated from O. bicolor   by the netlike microsculpture of the pronotum. The differences to the similar O. lewisi   are mentioned there.

Description: Length: 3.5 mm. Colouration: Dark reddish to light brown; legs and antennae reddish.

Head: 0.50 mm long, 0.60 mm wide; eyes slightly prominent; anterior edge of clypeus slightly emarginate; without granules at angles; setiferous punctures large and dense; interstices between punctures one-fourth as wide as diameter of punctures or slightly shorter; moderately wide impunctate midline; netlike microsculpture fine, but distinct; surface slightly shiny.

Antennae with oblong second antennomere and conical third; third antennomere not longer than second; fourth antennomere quadrate; following two antennomeres slightly wider than long; antennomeres 7 to 10 distinctly thicker than preceding antennomeres; slightly wider than long.

Pronotum: 0.70 mm long, 0.70 mm wide; widest at anterior angles; evenly convergent to posterior angels; posterior angles obtusely rounded; lateral margin fine; invisible at anterior angles in dorsal aspect; setiferous punctures very large and deep; still larger than on head; on disc in irregular rows of 6 to 8 punctures; interstices between punctures one-fourth as wide as diameter of punctures; microsculpture netlike; surface slightly shiny.

Elytra: 0.85 mm long, 0.70 mm wide; with deep and large punctures; partly coriaceous; surface with irregular microsculpture; slightly shiny.

Abdomen with dense setiferous punctation and moderately wide impunctate midline; isodiametric microsculpture distinct; surface slightly shiny.

Protibia: 0.43 mm long, 0.15 mm wide; 9 spines on outer edge; apical 2 spines on very short digits; WLR: 2.5; in posterior aspect, comb at inner emargination partly covered in apical half; posterior face with moderately dense setation; setae nearly half as long as protibial width.

Aedeagus slender; apical lobe straight; in apical half rectangularly angulate; apex widely obtuse; inner edge of apical lobe with three pairs of sensillae.
