Structural Features: Very similar to carinata but males have a stridulatory field that is much larger in area than the pronotum; in carinata, it is similar in extent (Rehn and Hebard, 1914). The ovipositor is regularly arcuate, armed with teeth along the margins; in carinata, the ovipositor is straighter and the teeth are smaller (Rehn and Hebard, 1914).
