anteriorly emarginate with slightly forward protruding anterior angles, lateral margins edges bent downwards and strongly curved; posterior angles absent; surface except for a narrow longitudinal line and several small patches, coarsely pitted with converging punctures, slightly indented transversely along the posterior edge. Elytra more than twice as wide as the thorax, very short ovate, with tip slightly pulled down. Slightly convex towards the suture, with strong lateral carinae up to the apical slope, on the elytral disc two indistinct, strongly meandering longitudinal elevated lines, with are connected by small transverse wrinkles, surface uneven and, with the exception of the very narrow suture, quite densely punctured.
