Clypeus and supraclypeal area with sparse (2-3x PW), large punctures, integument smooth, shiny between punctures; remaining areas of face, vertex and gena coarsely and densely punctate, punctures finer and sparser on gena, integument otherwise smooth; hypostomal area minutely imbricate between sparse punctures.

oaxacacola (vide infra) but differs in that the punctures centrally on the mesoscutal disc are separated by a puncture width and are exceedingly faint on otherwise strongly imbricate integument; the coarse punctures of the mesepisternum gradually blend into dorsoventrally elongate areolae ventrally; and the first metasomal tergum is smooth except for centrally with minute punctures separated by 2-4 times a puncture width.
