Pantomorus setulosus is characterized by the strongly prominent conical eyes, the slightly conical rostrum, the very short and squamose antennae, and the dense body vestiture, composed of large and strongly overlapped scales, and broad, middle-length, erect setae along the elytral intervals. The color pattern is similar to that of Pantomorus postfasciatus, light brown with small darker spots. There is a characteristic dark-brown macula on the center of the pronotum, flanked by a longitudinal whitish stripes, and three pairs of transversal dark-brown stripes on anterior, middle and posterior thirds of elytra. These stripes are irregular in shape and flanked by whitish scales.
