Elongate-ovate, yellow-brown; pubescence white, coarse, scattered, condensed on the elytra, into several indefinite bands; beak punctured and strongly striate. Prothorax smaller than usual, wider than long, gradually narrowed in front, slightly rounded on the sides, coarsely punctured. Scutellum white-pubescent. Elytra at base but little wider than the prothorax, gradually wider, elongate -ovate, brown, with the humeri and a common sutural rounded spot behind the middle, yellow-brown; two narrow indistinct transverse bands of pubescence before the middle, and others behind the middle; striae strongly punctured, interspaces slightly convex, nearly smooth. Antennae with funiculus 6-jointed, second and third joints equal; thighs scarcely clavate, acutely toothed; claws divergent, armed with a short basal tooth, which is rounded at tip.

Length 2.3-3 mm.; 0.09-0.12 inch.

Illinois, Walsh; Texas, Belfrage. On account of the comparatively smaller size of the prothorax, this insect has some resemblance in form to Orchestes, but the eyes are of the usual size in the present genus, widely separated, and the hind legs are not thicker. The elytra are not rounded on the sides behind the humeri, though gradually wider as far a the middle.
