Antennal segments 3 and 4 both have 2 sense cones (Mound, 1974). The pronotum is smooth and all the major setae are present. The anteromarginal setae are greatly reduced, and the metanotum is smooth. The abdomen is large and heavy, and the pelta is large and mound shaped (Thomasson and Post, 1966).
