( Figs. 30 A –FView FIGURES 30 A – F)

Diagnosis. Triangular projection on gonocoxite, covering apex of projections in the aedeagal complex; arm of gonocoxite curved with a spur-like bristle apically; ejaculatory apodeme short, 0.7 times the length of gonostylus. Description. Male. Head subcircular in frontal view. Antenna with 13 flagellomeres; scape and pedicel subspherical; basal flagellomeres pyriform and centric; ascoids 1.2 times as long as the length of flagellomere ( Fig. 30 AView FIGURES 30 A – F); 13 th flagellomere subcylindrical with terminal apiculus separated by a suture ( Fig. 30 CView FIGURES 30 A – F). Palpus three segmented; first segment with sensilla in depressed pit on medial surface; palpus formula 1.0: 0.5: 0.5 ( Fig. 30 BView FIGURES 30 A – F). Wing. R 4 + 5 with base unsclerotized; r-m unsclerotized and m-cu absent ( Fig. 30 DView FIGURES 30 A – F). Male terminalia: Hypandrium and gonocoxites fused with a triangular projection, covering apex of projections in the aedeagal complex. Arm of gonocoxite pilose, curved, with a spur-like apical bristle and thinner bristles of the same length basally. Gonostylus slightly sclerotized, articulated ventrally to gonocoxite, bare, curved and digitiform. Aedeagal complex with one pair of subcircular fused projections, and with a pilose structure at apex. Aedeagus bifid ending at medial region of projections in the aedeagal complex ( Fig. 30 FView FIGURES 30 A – F). Ejaculatory apodeme short, 0.7 times the length of gonostylus. Epandrium wider than long. Cercus pilose. Hypoproct with apical micropilosity ( Fig. 30 EView FIGURES 30 A – F).
