Epiphallus: transversal sclerites developed and of diverse shape, varying from a triangular shape to a peduncular structure, distally truncated with a “T” or “L” shape. Median prolongation tubular and with truncated or emarginated apex.

Endophallus: Non-fused parameres of varying development; internal process usually poorly developed (except in G. africana ), Basal plate triangular, square-shaped or ovoid, latero-basal plate present or absent. Antero-apical process absent.
