( Figs. 28 A –HView FIGURES 28 A – H)

Diagnosis. R 4 + 5 complete at base; r-m present; arm of gonocoxite sinuous, apically with many short and thick bristles; two pairs of projections in the aedeagal complex, the subtriangular dorsal with sharp apex; the ventral, with sharp apex, longer than the dorsal projection, jointed apically by a ventral membrane; ejaculatory apodeme twice the length of gonostylus; cercus with a projection with two apical bristles.

Description. Male. Head subcircular in frontal view. Antenna: scape subcylindrical about as long as the subspherical pedicel; flagellum with 13 flagellomeres, 1 st to 12 th pyriforms and eccentric ( Fig. 28 AView FIGURES 28 A – H); 13 th flagellomere subcylindrical with terminal apiculus separated by suture ( Fig. 28 CView FIGURES 28 A – H); pair of digitiform ascoids present in all flagellomeres; basal ascoids 1.3–1.4 times the length of flagellomere ( Fig. 28 AView FIGURES 28 A – H); apical ascoids 1.2 times the length of flagellomere ( Fig. 28 CView FIGURES 28 A – H). Palpus three segmented; first segment with sensilla in depressed pit on medial surface; palpus formula 1.0: 0.7: 0.8 ( Fig. 28 BView FIGURES 28 A – H). Wing. R 4 + 5 complete at base; r-m present; m-cu absent ( Fig. 28 DView FIGURES 28 A – H). Male terminalia: Hypandrium fused with gonocoxites narrow. Gonocoxites with posterior sinuous arm, apically with many short and thick bristles. Gonostylus articulated ventrally to gonocoxite, digitiform, bare. Two pairs of projections in the aedeagal complex, the first dorsal pair, subtriangular, with sharp apex and directed to the midline; the second pair of projections, ventral, complex, with sharp apex, longer than the dorsal projections, jointed apically by a ventral membrane. Aedeagus short ( Fig. 28 HView FIGURES 28 A – H). Ejaculatory apodeme twice the length of gonostylus. Epandrium subrectangular ( Figs. 28 E, 28 GView FIGURES 28 A – H). Cercus bottle-shaped in lateral view with two apical bristles ( Fig. 28 FView FIGURES 28 A – H). Hypoproct with apical micropilosity ( Fig. 28 EView FIGURES 28 A – H).

Female. Unknown.
