Beak finely and sparsely punctate, feebly carinate, scaly near base. Thorax as wide at middle as long, sides parallel near base, rounded at middle; disc broadly and feebly constricted near apex, sparsely and rather coarsely punctate. Elytra oblong-oval, not wider at base than middle of thorax; striae with rows of rather small, deep, rounded punctures; intervals feebly convex, each with a row of rather short, inclined clavate seise. Length 3.2 mm.
