The face of the head, which is wider than long, slopes steeply towards the sides. The labium is short and terminates between the fore trochanters. The anteclypeus is rectangular, the lora broad and the maxillary plates posteriorly emarginate. The frontoclypeus, which is convex, is completely enclosed by continuous epicranial and frontal sutures. The eyes are very large and the interior margin of each eye is indented adjacent to the antennae. The antennae, which extend considerably beyond the margin of the face, lack overhanging ledges. The ocelli, which are visible in both facial and dorsal aspect, are adjacent to the hind margin of the frontoclypeus. The crown is broadly arrow-shaped and the coronal suture extends almost as far as the anterior corners of the eyes. The pronotum is laterally long and considerably wider posteriorly than anteriorly. The tegmina, which overlap apically, have wide appendices. The hind tibiae have 3 rows of long spines interspersed with short spines (Evans 1966).
