Body length usually 5.8–6.9 mm (specimens from Hainan length 7.6–7.9 mm); head and pronotum reddish yellow to brown, lateral explanate areas of pronotum paler; mouthparts, antennae and legs yellowish brown or reddish brown; elytra reddish yellow, with dark marginal fascia occupying 7th–9th intervals, fascia conjoined on elytral apex but not on base, elytral lateral margins yellowish brown; ventral side yellowish brown to dark brown. Head glabrous, without punctures or microsculpture. Pronotum cordiform, widest near middle; ratio PW/PL 1.38 to 1.52; pronotal base briefly but distinctly lobed; disc glabrous, microsculpture indistinct, without punctures; front angles with a few short setae; lateral margins completely rounded in middle, sinuate before hind angles; front angles wide and round, not projected; hind angles sharp, rectangular or nearly so, slightly pointed; disc moderately convex; basal foveae wide and even, with a few fine punctures. Elytra with striae distinct, finely punctate; intervals slightly convex, without punctures or microsculpture; 3rd interval with two setigerous pores: basal one placed approximately basal one-third, adjacent to 3rd stria; apical one placed approximately apical one-eighth, adjacent to 2nd stria or in middle of interval; 5th interval with one setigerous pore near base, adjacent to 5th stria; 15-17 umbilical pores on 9th interval. Male genitalia. Median lobe of aedeagus with apical third slightly expanded; in dorsal view, left-lateral margin moderately sinuate medially, and then gradually narrowed to apex; apical lamella placed on left-ventral side, broadly rounded, not prolongate; internal sac with main flagellum slightly sinuous; basal part of main flagellum moderately bent, so trumpet-form expansion adjacent to left margin, apical margin of trumpet-form expansion not crenulate (Fig. 69). Female genitalia. Spermatheca slender and strongly bent near middle, but not so elongate as in Paraphaea binotata; spermathecal gland inserted near apical one-third of spermatheca, distinctly expanded at basal part, not bent; spermatheca with ring-sculpture between apex and the gland insertion; spermatheca strongly bent at apical one-third (Fig. 127). Apical segment of ovipositor scimitar-shaped, inner margin slightly angulate at apical one-third; length about three times basal width; inner margin setose in apical half; apex slightly widened, with membranous extension long and slender (Fig. 112).
