Male. The 7th abdominal dorsal process is narrowly-triangular in shape, tapering to a tip that is bulbous and rounded posteriorly ( Figs. 23‒25 View Figs ). The specilla are ca. parallel-sided throughout length, except at the tip; specilla gently recurved anteriorly and mostly smooth distally ( Figs. 28‒30, 32 View Figs ); lacking a terminal spur or raised tubercles; bearing few pits distally ( Figs. 31, 33 View Figs ). The subanal lobes are narrow basally, tapering and gently recurved distally, ca. ¾ the length of the specilla ( Figs. 28‒30, 32 View Figs ).
