The species of Dhysores have four setae on the labrum. The pronotum has angular and 0-1 marginal setae. There are minor setae on antennomeres V-X. The prefrontal pits are moderately or much reduced, round or oval, or punctiform. The post-antennal pits are small to obsolete. The basal impressions become discal strioles anteriorly. The striole plus basal impression is 0.55-0.85 of the pronotal length. The hind wings and eyes are well developed.
