Larva. Following combination of characters: A) dorsal surface of labrum with submarginal arc of eleven medium to long, simple setae; B) maxillary palp with three segments; C) labial palp segment II with broad thumb-like distomedial protuberance, segment III oblong; D) fore femur rather slender, length 3.6 × maximum width, dorsal margin with 12-15 spine-like setae; E) posterior margin of abdominal tergites with triangular spines, wider than long and with medial enhancements; F) paraproct distally not expanded, with ca. 29 stout marginal spines.

Dedicated to the indigenous Minang people from Sumatra.
The specimens were collected in altitudes of 1,640 m a.s.l. and 1,785 m a.s.l. in small (ca. 1 m wide), shallow (ca. 15 cm deep) and slow (0.15 m/s - 0.2 m/s) forest streams with partly open or closed canopy. The substrate was predominantly boulder, stones and gravel with patches of leaf litter or dead wood.
