Male. Tergum 7 knob narrow and slightly notched, knob width 13-17% of segment 7 width ( Figs. 15, 16 View Figs ). Tergum 9 with rounded knobs located near mid segment ( Figs. 13-15 View Figs ). Epiproct in dorsal view narrow and linear, maximum width 13-15% of epiproct length; maximum width occurs posterior of mid epiproct; apex wedge-shaped or narrowly rounded; dorsal membrane light colored and confined to a small area between the epiproct apex and dorsolateral horn tips; dorsal median groove extends full epiproct length ( Figs. 13-15 View Figs ). Epiproct in lateral view generally linear, with slight reverse curve dorsally and shallow keel ventrally; maximum depth 12-14% of length; maximum depth occurs anterior of mid epiproct; neck narrow ( Figs. 14, 15 View Figs ). Epiproct dorsolateral horns appressed to main dorsal surface; horn length 15- 17% of epiproct length; horn tips extend forward to 92-95% of epiproct length ( Figs. 13-15 View Figs ; Table 1 View Table 1 ).

Female. Subgenital plate heavily sclerotized and dark, covering most of sternum 8 and extending onto sternum 7 (Fig. 237, Nelson and Baumann 1989).
