Diagnosis. This subspecies has the male ninth abdominal tergite globular with the down-curved apical area wide-shallowly grooved in middle; at end, on both sides of shallow groove the ninth tergite is provided with a dorso-ventrally compressed process with converging margins in apical half and with blunt tip. Male subgenital plate little wider than long; styli inserted laterally before apical margin; apical margin roundly projecting on both sides, concave in middle. An extensive description of the taxon, including wing venation and variation of coloration has already been given by Karny (1925b). The male ninth abdominal tergite and ist appendages are similar to that of X. p. aurantiaca , but the projections of the ninth tergite are narrower and little longer in X. p. keyica and the ninth tergite is missing the apical bulge found in the type of X. p. aurantiaca .
