Head with a smooth raised line on the vertex; eyes well-separated; rostrum arcuate, reaching to a little beyond the middle coxae, rugulose and carinate at the base, and sparsely, minutely punctate thence to the tip.

Elytra a little wider than the prothorax, slightly rounded at the sides, the humeri rather prominent, the apices raised and separately, angularly produced; deeply punctate-striate, the interstices feebly convex, broader than the striae moderately long.
