By flattened body and light brown head with a black anterior frons the new species is similar to species of the closely related genus Mendaxinus Gildenkov, 2004 but according to the structure of the 3-segmented tarsus, aedeagus and spermatheca it undoubtedly belongs to the genus Carpelimus Laech, 1819. The new species differs from all known species of Carpelimus by the structure of aedeagus.
