The antenna is without an apical stylet. Antennomeres V-X have basal setae. The clypeal setae are absent. The eye is large and normal for Rhysodini. It is deeper than long, and the cornea is facetted. The temporal setae are absent. The frontal grooves are deep and complete. The medial angles of the temporal lobes are simple, without emargination or translucent areas.

The marginal groove of the pronotum is deep and complete. The spur of the middle tibia is curved anteriorly. The punctures of the abdominal sterna III-V are scattered. The lateral pits of the female vary. Either they are shallow and restricted to sternum IV, or else they are deep and extend over sterna III and IV. The anterior femur of the male has a ventral tooth, and the hind calcars are larger than the middle ones.
