(Type locality: Paraguay, Misiones) is the second Apioninae species from South America with dense, thin vestiture and raised areas on the elytra. In addition to these characters, vestiture color pattern and male genitalic characters such as penis shape, length of the tuning fork-shaped sclerite in the internal sac (the largest found in Apioninae), and shape of the tegminal plate are diagnostic of this new species.(AU)
