Color: Vertex with a black line between the ocelli, which sends forward a quadrangular spot on either side of the median line. Before this line the margin is ivory white, disc brown, face highly polished, shining, shading to black below, traces of about five pale arcs. Pronotum brown behind the eyes, behind this a narrow light band containing a pair of irregular dark spots on either side. Behind this the disc is brownish or fuscous irrorate. Scutellum irrorate with brown except for three ivory white points in a triangle. Elytra milky white, the nervures brown, a black or dark brown saddle across the posterior two-thirds of clavus and usually a narrow band at base and apex and the costal veinlets black. The saddle contains four white spots along the suture and some irregular ones on the corium. Genitalia: Female segment rather long, posterior margin slightly angularly excavated, the median fifth produced into a broad strap-shaped tooth as long as its basal width, slightly narrowing and a trifle bi-lobed at the extremity, pygofers short and stout, very convex as seen from below, the ultimate segment curving around them. Male valve very obtusely angulate, almost concealed, plates small, a trifle longer than their basal width, slightly concavely narrowing to their acute apices, margins clothed with a few coarse spines.
