Holotype ♂. Body length 4.5 mm.

Diagnosis. Fronto-orbital plate with dark brown pruinosity. Palpus dark brown to brown, orange at extreme distal tip. Tergite 6 almost as long as syntergosternite 7+8, narrowed medially. Epandrium with V-shaped spot anteromedially.

Head ( Figs 15–17 View FIGURES 15–20 ). Frontal pruinosity velvety dark brown, with distinct dorsal vitta projecting laterally to ocellar triangle reaching vertex area ( Fig. 16 View FIGURES 15–20 ). Height 1.4X the length; width 1.2X the height. Frons 1.7X wider than long. Fronto-orbital plate with dark brown pruinosity in frontal view ( Fig. 16 View FIGURES 15–20 ). Genal groove area reddish brown, large, bare; gena predominantly with gray-yellowish pruinosity; postgena dark brown pruinose ( Fig. 17 View FIGURES 15–20 ). Palpus brown to dark brown, orange at extreme distal tip.

Thorax ( Fig. 18 View FIGURES 15–20 ). Mesonotum dark brown to black with a faint gray pruinose stripe between dorsocentral setae, almost reaching third dorsocentral setae pair, more distinct when seen under anterior incident light.

Epandrium with scattered setae on posterior edge, with a whitish V-shaped spot anteromedially ( Fig. 22 View FIGURES21–26 ). Cercus as long as epandrium, with sparse setae on anterior margin and outer surface ( Fig. 21 View FIGURES21–26 ). Hypandrium 3.2X longer than epandrium ( Figs 21–23, 25 View FIGURES21–26 ). Phallapodeme 2.8X longer than hypandrium (phallapodeme lost after description). Basiphallus almost as long as distiphallus ( Figs 21, 24 View FIGURES21–26 ).
