Notaulus and parapsidal furrow complete, former very convergent posteriorly. T2 with pair of subcircular lateral depressions, each one with linear tuft of setae, being lateral one especially longer than others. Posterior hypopygeal margin straight, with small median callus. Genitalia: paramere very wide, apex as conical projection; aedeagal ventral ramus as long as dorsal body, laminar, apex blunt, oblique with outer corner sharpened; dorsal body with two pairs apical lobes, outer pair narrowing apically in dorsal and lateral view; inner pair somewhat stout, membranous setay.
