Diagnosis. Adult: Frons without setae; antenna short, same length in both sexes, about 30 flagellomeres; antennal fossae separated by about width of pedicel; fore femur without clavate setae; ocular rim without setae; fore femoral sense hair as long as fore femur and mid femoral sense hair; mesonotum without blade-like setae; tibial spurs present; pretarsal claws large, longer than one-half length of distal tarsomere; pilula axillaris large; fore wing vein 2A runs in a fairly even curve toward 3A; posterior area of hind wing narrower than presectoral area, CuA bends to hind margin at or before origin of medial fork; anterior banksian line weakly developed; postventral lobe of male ectoproct more than eight times longer than middle diameter, without secondary lobes; male paramere platelike, without hinge; genital sac with lateral lobe-like sclerite; mediuncus smooth; female terminalia with pregenital plate membranous, without median tooth; gonapophyseal plate narrow, short, not transverse; lateral gonapophyses separated, with strong digging setae; ectoproct with digging setae; posterior gonapophyses without scraping setae.
