Meso-metapleural suture distinct and complete. Protarsomere 1 as long as 4. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 234C View FIGURE 234 ) with one small subapical tooth and 6–7 peg-like setae. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 234C View FIGURE 234 ) with inner side proximally not serrate and 1–2 rows of 1–4 (proximal) + 11–19 lamellae; apex with at least seven lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/0/1.
