Head glabrous, without punctures, microsculpture indistinct; males with terminal labial palpomeres fusiform, slightly expanded in middle. Pronotum glabrous,cordiform, widest at apical one-third; ratio PW/PL 1.22 to 1.32; pronotal base briefly but distinctly lobed; disc moderately convex, microsculpture indistinct, without punctures; front angles with a few fine and short setae (distinctly shorter than in Allocota cyanipennis); lateral margins rounded, slightly expanded in middle, strongly sinuate before hind angles; lateral explanate areas moderately wide, without punctures; hind angles more or less distinct, rectangular or nearly so, usually slightly pointed; basal foveae very shallow, without punctures; median line very fine, usually indistinct. Elytra with striae slightly sulcate, finely punctate; intervals nearly flat, without accessory setae, with a row of very fine punctures; microsculpture very shallow, isodiametric, or absent; 3rd and 5th intervals with four to ten setigerous pores, their position variable; 7th interval with some setigerous pores or without pore; setae on lateral margins very fine and short, hardly visible. Legs. Protibiae with cleaning spur absent (Fig. 140); males with adhesive hairs well developed (two whole rows) on first two mesotarsomeres, rudimentary (two rows, weakly present near apex) on 3rd mesotarsomere. Male genitalia with median lobe of aedeagus stout, slightly bent to right side near apex in dorsal view, right margin slightly curved before apical lamella; apical lamella placed on right side, narrow, slightly elongate; internal sac with setose area divided into two parts; apex of secondary flagellum simple, not expanded; trumpet-form expansion with ventral margin more or less expanded (Figs 79, 80).
