Vertex in dorsal view short and narrow, a little longer than wide, about 1/3 of its total length projecting beyond the anterior margin of eyes, posterior compartments as long as anterior one, with shallow depressed areas marked on both sides, lateral margin ridged and slightly elevated above eye; submedian carinae arising near anterior margin of the eyes, near to lateral carinae, meeting shortly before the fastigium, delimiting a very shallow, small sub-apical areola continued into a simple nonfurcatedmedian carina; angle of vertex to frons: ca 85-90[degrees].
Lepidelphax differs also in the ground pattern coloration with distinctive longitudinal dark marks on the head and several regularly distributed small spots on the thorax and abdomen, the simple median carina of the frons, not forked below the fastigium, and the single median process on the ventral margin of the pygofer.
Vertex short and narrow, a little longer than wide, subacutely rounding into frons, about 1/3 of its total length projecting beyond the anterior margin of eyes, lateral margins subparallel, strongly expanded laterally before eyes, base of vertex with shallow depressed marked areas on both sides; sub median carinae arising near anterior margin of eyes next to prominent lateral carinae, meeting shortly before to fastigium and delimiting a very faint small subapical areola.
Frons parallel-sided, median carina forked near fastigium, arms closely approximated onto vertex.
Superficially, the glossy, uniformly brownish-orange color, with the slight infuscation of the fastigium and wings help distinguish this genus.
