Epiproct in dorsal view with nearly uniform width along length, maximum width 17-25% of epiproct length; maximum width occurs near mid epiproct; apex broadly rounded and with median posterior-projecting triangular lobe ( Fig. 17 View Figs and see Fig. 19 View Figs in Nelson and Baumann 1987); dorsal membrane dark gray or black, sometimes lighter at tip. Epiproct in lateral view with pronounced reverse (S-shaped) curve, the dorsal surface concave in anterior half and convex in posterior half; ventral surface deeply curved; maximum depth 18-20% of length; maximum depth occurs anterior of mid epiproct; neck narrow ( Fig. 18 View Figs ). Epiproct dorsolateral horns closely appressed to main dorsal surface; horn length 14-18% epiproct length; horn tips extend forward to 80-86% of epiproct length ( Figs. 18, 20 View Figs ; Table 1 View Table 1 ).
