"This very uncommon species resembles G. debilis, but has stronger lateral pronotal projections, a somewhat darker integument, and more uniformly yellowish pubescence (basally vs. apically - sometimes there are longitudinal variations in the color, or pubescence may be grayish toward the middle, but not at the base as in debilis."(1)
