Diagnosis. Males small (5–5.5 mm long), pale brown, head deeply excavated between eyes; eyes very large, almost contiguous ventrally and bearing posterolateral excavations; inner two interstitial lines closest to sutural ridge well defined, outermost line nearest lateral margin moderately defined, second line in from lateral margin poorly defined; apical labial palpomere small, ovoid, entire; antennal length slightly less than GHW; labrum small, about as wide as long. Ventral surface of T8 without flanges and ridges. Aedeagus with a very short median lobe and broad hair bearing LL. Ballantyne (1968) redescribed and figured males and Ballantyne & Lambkin (2000) gave a short diagnosis.

Female. Not associated.

Larva. Larvae are associated by label data only. 8 mm long; dorsal surface very shiny, brown; without laterally explanate tergal margins; dorsal surface covered with short brown spines (all terga but the last bear 4 short rounded projections across their posterior margin).
