Resembles the genus Pharsalia, but differs in having the underlobes of the eyes much larger, more approximate in front; the front of course narrower, more trapeziform; the antenniferous tubercles somewhat more distant and not spiniformly enlarged at the innerside; the elytra without tubercles at the base, the shoulders not prominent; the mesosternum not acutely produced.
