Body is pale with brown shading on the antennal segments. The setae of ocellar pair 3 are subequal in length to the pronotal posteroangular setae. Segment 6 of the female's antenna is narrowed at the base, and the male antenna is bizarre, as segment 6 is greatly elongated compared to other segments. The lines of sculpture on the abdominal tergites appear to have very small teeth, and only the anterolateral pair of campaniform sensilla is present on tergite 9 of both males and females (O'Neill, 1972).
