Palacio (1997) reports the measurements of this species as HW 0.67–0.77, HL 0.65–0.75, CI 102–103. From the description, it seems to combine characters of O. inca
and O. balzani
. The head size and shape, the large compound eyes, and the impressed metanotal groove are similar to O. inca
. The mandibular dentition and the basal scape lobe are apparently like O. balzani
. The original publication indicates that a paratype was deposited at MCZC, but Longino (2013) did not find it among MCZ material.
