Ocellar setae present but fine; outer vertical setae present; inner vertical setae absent. Face brown to black with grey pruinosity. Parafacial black with grey pruinosity, bare, 1.8­2.0 times as wide as first flagellomere. Lower margin of face projecting, visible in profile, orange yellow, or black (rarely), grey pruinose. Vibrissa well differentiated; intervibrissal distance 0.9­1.0 times distance between vibrissa and eye on same side; facial ridge with bristles on lower 1/3. Gena brown to black with grey pruinosity; hairs white; height 0.18­0.2 times eye height. Lunule black and shining; sublunular bulla indistinct. Antenna black; first flagellomere 1.0­1.1 times as long as pedicel; arista thickened on basal 0.25. Length of oral opening 1.9­2.1 times its width. Occiput flattened, white pruinose; hairs white. Palpus yellow or brown.

Mesoscutum strongly pruinose, with 4 black longitudinal vittae, with fine black hairs. 0+1 acrostichal seta; 0(1)+1 dorsocentral setae; 1­2 postpronotal setae; 0­1 postsutural intra­alar seta; 2 notopleural setae; 1 supra­alar seta; 2 postalar setae. Pleuron grey and yellow pruinose; hairs white or black. Anepimeral setae hair­like, black; 1 katepisternal seta; 7­12 meral setae. Scutellum black with grey pruinosity, with two pairs of marginal setae; apical setae present and distinct; discal setae randomly arranged, not in rows. Subscutellum not very prominent. WING. Lower calypter hyaline white. Wing base without scale­like setae. Tegula brown to black. Basicosta yellow. Wing pictured, from white with light brown infuscation to strongly pictured, narrow or broad; petiole of apical cell 0.25­0.3 times as long as preceding section of R 4+5; M meeting R 4+5 at acute angle, or almost at right angle (rarely). Halter yellow or brown. LEGS. Fore femur black; ventrally and laterally with whitish yellow hairs, dorsal surface with black hairs. Fore tibia black, with 1­2 p, apically with 1 p and 1 d. Fore tarus black. Fore claws brown, apex black; 1.4­ 1.5 times as long as fifth tarsomere. Pulvilli brown. Mid femur black; ventrally and laterally with whitish yellow hairs, dorsal surface with black hairs, or hairs black. Mid tibia black, with 1 ad, 1­2 p and 1 v, apically with 1 av, 1 pv, 1 p, 1 v and 1 d. Hind femur black; ventrally and laterally with whitish yellow hairs, dorsal surface with black hairs, or hairs black. Hind tibia black, slightly arched, with 2­3 v, one row of ad and pd.

ABDOMEN. Abdominal tergites totally black, or with yellow spot or area (only on outer side of syntergite I+II and tergite III); pruinosity of tergites present (silvery); longitudinal vitta absent. 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 shiny, pruinose, or not. Pruinosity of tergites III, IV, and V silvery, or yellow; hair spots indistinct. TERMINALIA. Syncercus broad, with a wide and shallow notch posteriorly, apex strongly bent ventrally. Surstylus slender, downward, longer than cercus. Ejaculatory apodeme small, knob­like. Hypandrium broad, as long as phallapodeme. Epiphallus well developed. Pregonite reduced. Postgonite long, pointed. Phallus 1.2­1.3 times as long as hypandrium, with dense hairs. Distiphallus partly sclerotized.
