Relative length of abdominal tergites I+II:III:IV: V = 1.2:1:1:1.1; relative width I+II:III:IV: V = 0.4:1:1:0.8. Syntergite I+II pruinose (thinly). Tergite III shiny. Pruinosity of tergite IV absent; hair spots indistinct. Pruinosity of tergite V yellow (V­like); hair spots indistinct. TERMINALIA. Syncercus slender, with a small and shallow notch posteriorly. Surstylus longer than cercus, hook­like; strongly arched dorsally. Ejaculatory apodeme slender. Hypandrium broad, shorter than phallapodeme. Postgonite bent ventrally, pointed, longer than pregonite. Pregonite short, with sparse hairs dorsally. Phallus broad, longer than hypandrium, without fine hairs. Distiphallus branched; dorsolateral process with two branches.

FEMALE. Body size sometimes smaller than male. Wing hyaline. Eyes almost touching. Thorax without yellow pruinose area. Anterior spine­like setae of hind tibia absent. Tergite V also shining black.
