Diagnosis. Body yellowish with light-brown punctures dorsally, densely punctured; humeral angles curved posterolaterally ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 1 – 8 ). Male genitalia: processes of AB X well-developed, projected posteriorly and well surpassing the posterolateral angles of the pygophore. Female genitalia: margins of gonocoxites 8 reflexed.

Female genitalia. Genital plates setose. Margins of gonocoxites 8 reflexed; sutural margins of gonocoxites 8 parallel at basal 2 / 3, divergent posteriorly; posterior margins of gonocoxites 8 convex, sinuous ( Figs 23–24 View FIGURES 23 – 25 ). Laterotergites 8 triangular; inner margins of laterotergites 8 obscuring the basal-lateral angles of gonocoxites 8; posterior margin convex with small acute projection sub-medially. Gonocoxites 9 Y-shaped. Laterotergites 9 dactyliform, surpassing posterior margin of abdomen. AB X quadrate. Gonapophyses 9 membranous, chitinellipsen rounded ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 23 – 25 ). Posterior thickening of vaginal intima sclerotized, finger-like; anterior thickening of vaginal intima saccular, with 1 + 1 curved, sclerotized projections. Anterior annular flange flat; posterior annular flange convergent. Capsula seminalis, with three dactyliform processes ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 23 – 25 ).
