2.2 to 3 mm long.
Sturdy ; oval, rounded shape.
Thorax and elytra covered in an inconspicuous pubescence of yellow-coloured flat bristles pointing to the rear end.
Finely punctuated pronotum and elytra, so that striation is barely visible, unlike in Stegobium paniceum.
Eleven-articled antennae; triangular, serrate articles (unlike in Stegobium paniceum).
At rest, head, thorax and appendices are concealed under the abdomen, which gives the insect (in profile view) a characteristic aspect that makes it possible to tell it from all the other species of the Anobidae family dealt with in this site.
Uniform and hued, ranging from chestnut yellow to brown, red-brown included
