Subgenital plate separated by a large membranous zone from preceding sternite; otherwise with converging, upcurved lateral margins, setose; tip faintly bilobate ( Fig. 80D View FIGURE 80 ). Ovipositor falcate, strongly curved in subbasal area, afterwards moderately curved; tip subobtuse ( Fig. 80C View FIGURE 80 ).
