Description by Dozier 1928: 35.

Head behind the eyes distinctly calloused; the vertex very long and narrow, much produced, the lateral margins slightly dilated and reflexed, the cephalic process arched upwards. Frons long and narrow, tricarinate; clypeus long, with a prominent median keel, and obliquely striated on the sides. Pronotum produced in front between the eyes, the hind margin emarginate, tricarinate. Scutellum distinctly tricarinate. Elytra either brachypterous or macropterous, usually grayish with coarse nervures interrupted with fuscous. In the brachypterous form the elytra are usually long oval, barely longer than the abdomen, and rounded at the tips. Posterior tibiae armed with five to eight thick spines. Type of the genus: Scolops sulcipes Say.
