Antennae without a clear club, but evenly and slightly broadening towards the tip with the segments loosely attached. Last segment of the palps thickened and ovate, broader than the penultimate segment.
Front margin of the pronotum more or less angularly sinuate. Body relatively broader. Antennae more distinctly broadening but without a really clear club. Last segment of the palps long and not broader than the penultimate segment.
