Antenna, labrum, mandible, palpi and legs yellowish brown. Ventral side black. Head: Relatively long, a little convex, dorsal side punctuate, with longitudinal rugose at laterodorsal area.

Pronotum: A little convex, surface distinctly yellowish pubescent and deeply and largely punctuate than head disk, more concentrate at base, base with two fovea, a little wide and long, with transverse mashes at base, basal angle rounded. Elytra: Elongtely elliptic, widest near behind of middle, surface densely pubescent with small punctuate at interval and striae strongly and deeply punctuate, elytral apex with yellowish bend at interval 3 to 8, connected to apex, middle side of bend combined to marginal area of apex. Legs: Yellowish brown, 5th segment of tarsus with ventral setae rows. Aedeagus (Fig. 2): Almost sickle shape, apex very hooked and twisted and concaved on dorsal view, right paramere wide and rounded at least 2.5 times more wide than left one, left paramere narrowed.
Notes. This species identified easily by greenish head and pronotm in dorsal and shape of yellowish bend at elytral apex (Nakane, 1986). And it is very similar to
