Subovate, brown, covered beneath with pale, above with brown scales; beak long, punctured and striate, head feebly punctured, frontal fovea elongate. Prothorax wider than long, gradually narrowed in front from the base, slightly rounded on the sides, deeply and densely punctured, with three dorsal vittae of pale scales. Elytra at base not wider than the prothorax, gradually wider and slightly rounded on the sides, striae punctured, interspaces slightly convex, fourth for the middle, third and sixth from base to middle covered with pale scales. Antennae testaceous at base, second joint of funiculus as long as the two following. Thighs clavate, armed with a small tooth, which seems to be wanting on the hind pair. Length 3.2 mm.; 0.125 inch.

Georgia and Illinois; two specimens. The outer interspaces of the elytra behind the middle, and the scutellum are also covered with pale scales. The teeth of the tarsal claws are more approximate than in any of the preceding species, and seem to be almost connate.
