( Figs. 29 A –IView FIGURES 29 A – I)

Diagnosis. Apex of Sc unsclerotized; M 2 with base unsclerotized; hypandrium involving the aedeagus, with a subspherical dorsal projection; arm of gonocoxite elongated coated laterally by bristles and apically by two setae; one pair of projections in the aedeagal complex; involving the aedeagus, curve-shaped; ejaculatory apodeme short, 1.25 times the length of gonostylus; cercus with apical rod-like bristles.

Description. Male. Head subcircular in frontal view. Antenna with 13 flagellomeres; scape and pedicel subspherical; flagellomeres pyriform and eccentric ( Fig. 29 AView FIGURES 29 A – I); ascoids 1.3 times as long as the length of flagellomere; 13 th flagellomere subcylindrical with terminal apiculus separated by a suture ( Fig. 29 GView FIGURES 29 A – I). Palpus three segmented; first segment with sensilla in depressed pit on medial surface; palpus formula 1.0: 0.7: 0.8 ( Fig. 29 BView FIGURES 29 A – I). Wing. apex of Sc unsclerotized; sc-r unsclerotized; R 4 + 5 with base unsclerotized; M 2 with base unsclerotized, r-m unsclerotized and m-cu absent ( Fig. 29 DView FIGURES 29 A – I). Male terminalia: Hypandrium and gonocoxites fused, hypandrium involving the aedeagus, with a dorsal subspherical projection ( Figs. 29 F, 29 HView FIGURES 29 A – I). Gonocoxites with elongate arm coated laterally with bristles and apically with two setae. Gonostylus unsclerotized, subtriangular. Presence of one pair of projections in the aedeagal complex; involving the aedeagus, curved-shaped. Aedeagus with expanded and rounded apex ( Fig. 29 FView FIGURES 29 A – I). Ejaculatory apodeme short, 1.25 times the length of gonostylus. Epandrium subcircular; elongated cercus, digitiform, with rod-like bristles in the ventral surface of the apex, about five ( Fig. 29 E, 29 IView FIGURES 29 A – I). Hypoproct tapering apically with apical micropilosity and expanded basally. Epiproct triangular with pointed apex ( Figs. 29 H, 29 IView FIGURES 29 A – I).

Female. Unknown.
