The species of this genus are characterized by the presence of a pocket-like structure on the pronotum; a mesopleuron with epicnemial carina vestigial or absent; the absence of the vein 3 rs-m in fore wing (Gauld, 1991); yellowish brown color and large ocelli (Gauld and Dubois, 2006).

Pronotum with dorsal end of epomia raised; mesoscutum strongly punctate (Figure 5); scutellum more or less flat with punctures (Figure 5), mesopleuron with regularly punctate except in the black diagonal stripe; epicnemial carina reaching anterior end of pleuron about half way up pronotum; sternaulus strongly impressed anteriorly; metapleuron regularly punctate over entire surface (Figure 6); submetapleural carina present and moderately elevated (Figure 6).
The species are characterised by the presence of a pocket-like structure on the pronotum, mesopleuron with carina epicnemial vestigial or absent, absence of the vein 3 rs-m in fore wing (Gauld, 1991), colour yellowish brown and large ocelli (Gauld and Dubois, 2006).
Mesoscutum convex, sparsely punctate, without any impressions (Figure 14), scutellum smooth with sparse punctures; mesopleuron smooth with few very fine setiferous punctures dorsally, epicnemial carina complete, curved to meet anterior margin of pleuron just below subalar prominence (Figure 15); metapleuron smooth with a few rugae above and parallel to juxtacoxal carina (Figure 15).
