Three frontal setae situated below the dorsal limit of the lunule. Gena with white or yellow setae. First row of occipital setae black, others yellow. Thorax. Prosternum and posterior surface of hind coxa with yellow or light brown setae. Chaetotaxy: acrostichals = 0 + 1, dorsocentrals = 0 + 2, intra-alars = 1 + 2 (anterior one shorter), supra-alars = 2 + 3, basal scutellars = 3. White or yellow antero-ventral scutellar setae. Two katepisternal setae. Postalar wall with white or yellow anterior setae. Lower calypter with a central dark spot, with white, yellow or light brown setae dorsally and a fringe of long hair-like setae along outer margin extending to its posterior margin. Mid femur without a ctenidium. Antero-dorsal surface of mid tibia with 1 median and 1 apical seta. Ventral surface of hind femur with 1 row of setae. Hind tibia with 2 setae in the basal third, 2 in the middle third and 1 preapical on antero-dorsal surface. Abdomen. Postero-ventral margins of T3 and to a lesser extent T4 curved posteriorly, so that segment 3 and to a lesser extent segment 4 are of nearequal length dorsally and ventrally. Posterior seam of T5 projected posteriorly and ventrally. Microtrichosity of the abdomen laterally grey and golden. ST1+3 with yellow or light brown hair-like setae. Two lateral setae on each side of T4. T5 with golden microtrichosity. Postero-lateral area of T5 with setae directed towards the ventral body region. Terminalia. ST5 orange. Medial margin of ST5 ∩-shaped. Inner margins of ST5 arms straight. Inner margins of ST5 arms with long hair-like setae anteriorly. Syntergosternite 7+8 as long as high in lateral view, orange, with golden microtrichosity. Epandrium bright orange. Cercus orange proximally and brown distally. Cercus in lateral view progressively narrowing towards the apex, with the dorsal margin angulated and a dorsal notch. Cercal apex acute in lateral view. Surstylus orange, finger-shaped, with a rounded apex. Pregonite with dorsal membranous extension. Postgonite tongue-shaped, straight in lateral view, with an undulated apex. Basi- and distiphallus connected by a desclerotized strip. Phallic tube short and straight. Juxta with a demarcated connection with the phallic tube. Juxta bilobed, each lobe with an acute apex. Lateral styli fused and forming only one broad tube. Vesica absent.

Variable features. Outer vertical seta of same size as postoculars. Chaetotaxy: dorsocentrals = 0 + 3 (anterior one shorter).
