Morphology

Body length: ♂ 6.6–7.3 mm, ♀ 7.1–8.2 mm.

Thorax: Hind margin of pronotum obtusely angled. Mesonotum with well­developed median carina and evanescent or well­developed sublateral and lateral carinae. Forewing 2.9–3.2 times longer than wide; costa without tubercles; 9 apical cells.

Male genitalia: Anal tube as in Figs 43U, 44A–B; pygophore and genital styles as in Figs 43S–T. Aedeagus ( Figs 43Q–R): Phallotheca with a slightly curved, very long spine (a) left lateral; a long, strongly curved, s­shaped spine (b) ventral; a slender, apically narrowing spine (c) right lateral; a small rounded ventral process below midlength; and a very large, umbrella­shaped, coarsely serrated, sheetlike process dorsolateral.
