Frontal margin narrowly shelf-like, slightly reflexed, carinate
; nasale with median carina.
Propodeum expanded with carinate
lateral crests well developed (in comparison with Glyptobasia) in dorsal view (Fig.
Elytral intervals carinate
. Elytra parallel-sided, narrower.
Body shape somewhat triangular, narrowest dorsally, widest through center; anterior end rounded without beak and posterior end without fingerlike extension (Heath); carinate
, canna forming line of dorsal knobs (Fig.
Third maxilliped consisting of four segments; ultimate segment stout, 1.2-1.3 times longer than penultimate segment, tapering distally, with some spines distally; lateral surface of ultimate segment longitudinally carinate
, with row of stiff setae; cross section trigonal; antepenultimate segment flattened dorsoventrally, with numerous heavily plumose setae on margins and with prominent cluster of long setulose setae on low elevation at proximomesial part; coxa with large, bilobed epipod; no strap-like process on epipod.
31) Upper margin of propodeum laterally with row of pits and/or posterior margin of propodeal spiracle distinctly carinate
(1); without row of pits and margin of spiracle not carinate
Elytra immaculate, with interval 8 carinate
on apical half, intervals 3 to 7 somewhat carinate
on apical 4th.
The shell is biconvex, transversely subrectangular, with a carinate
fold and flattened lateral parts of the ventral valve.
stellata has a carinate
and strongly stellate periphery.
Head: Wider across eyes than long (26.5/23); "genae" much shorter than clypeus and adherent at its apex; antenniferous lobes short with apex acute; antennae 2.45x as long as width of head (65/26.5), segment I by far longest, cylindrical and slightly curved, segments II + III shorter, more slender, and straight, IV shortest and clavate; length of antennal segments I/II/III/IV = 29/13.5/15.5/7; eyes stalked and directed anterolaterally; postocular lobes sinuately converging to constricted neck; vertex with a carinate
ridge laterally delimited by longitudinal grooves; rostrum arising from a slitlike atrium, shorter than head, lateral margins of rostral groove beset with a fringe of stiff setae.
All legs similar; with tibiae dorsally carinate
, meso-metatibiae with short spurs.
It is characterised by a sharp-sided metasoma with more or less no discernible laterotergites on the anterior six segments, by the flat and strong laterally carinate
scutellum, and by the flattened mesopleuron.
