The little known female of this species is redescribed in detail and also males are redescribed on the basis of 7 specimens (4 males and 3 females) collected from Kayseri and Aksaray provinces of Central Anatolia. The male and female genital structures, abdomen, variations of the pronotal and elytral patterns are illustrated.
