Bolton (2000) - TL 2.0, HL 0.55-0.58, HW 0.38-0.41, CI 69-71, ML 0.09, MI 15-16, SL 0.28-0.29, SI 71-74, PW 0.24-0.25, AL 0.58-0.60 (2 measured).

In profile these hairs are elevated and inclined anteriorly, but are not curved or arched forward in the apical halves of their lengths. Mediodorsally curved ground-pilosity between posterior margin of clypeus and highest point of vertex slender and simple, as are the principal curved hairs that project from the leading edge of the scape.
