Cavitas facialis mediocris subrectangularis non profunda, superne transverse distincte marginata: margine utrinque decurvo (; antennae in specimine nobis communicato mutilatae); clypeus brevissimus transversus, ad centrum marginis apicalis breviter et modice arcuato-emarginatus, disco nonnihil gibbus; reliquae partes oris nigro-piceae. Thorax subbrevis crassus subquadratus confertim crasse punctatus cyaneus; pronoti pars postica, dorsuli areae laterales, scutellum, metanoti margines et latera atque mesopleurae viridi-irrorata; dorsuli area media purpurascenti-violacea; metanoti anguli postico-laterales robusti lati triangulares; sternum et pedes viridi-cyanei tarsis fuscis; alae sordide hyalinae, venis firmibus brunneis, cellula radiali lanceolata apice anguste aperta.
Abdomen robustum subovatum, basi transversum, capite thoraceque simul sumtis brevius, dorso sat convexum crebre modice punctatum nitidum; segmenta l.-mum et 2:dum aurea, hujus margo basalis nigro-aeneus; segmentum 3:tium valde convexo-declive totum cyaneum et confertissime punctatum punctis mediocribus; series ante-apicalis profunda sub margine convexiusculo regionis anticae partim abscondita, foveolis profundis paucis nigro-aeneis, hinc inde confluentibus et tunc transversis linearibus; margo apicalis brevissimus punctulatus, dentibus 5 spinoideis aequalibus in lineam lenissime curvam sitis, emarginaturis mediocribus modice arcuatis, invicem latitudine et profunditate subaequalibus.
