Examined on photograph

MADAGASCAR: 1 specimen, Vohimana, 4 Jan. 2006, 13:35, Nicolas Cliquennois ( Fig. 36 View Figs 36–42 ), 18°55’ S, 48°30’ E.

Male genitalia

Black with gonostyli showing large, basoventral ochraceous patch ( Fig. 13 View Figs 13–18 ); pygofer higher than long and with posterior margin sinuate in lateral view ( Fig. 13 View Figs 13–18 ); anal tube elongate, 1.6 times longer than broad at apex and with lateral margins sinuate in dorsal view ( Fig. 14 View Figs 13–18 ); gonostyli elongate, 2.4 times longer than high, not surpassing apex of anal tube and acutely rounded at apex in lateral view ( Fig. 13 View Figs 13–18 ); dorsal margin of gonostyli projecting laterally from base to midlength and with strong tooth directed ventrally ( Figs 13–14 View Figs 13–18 ); ventral margin and apical half of dorsal margin broadly rounded in lateral view ( Fig. 13 View Figs 13–18 ).

Remarks

Male genitalia without basodorsal process on gonostyli.

Belbina bergrothi   can be separated (1) from B. recurva   by not having the margins of the anal tube produced into a semi-circular lateral plate; (2) from B. madagascariensis   and B. nympha   by having the gonostyli acutely rounded apically and more elongate; (3) from B. foliacea   by not having the gonostyli angulose above mediodorsal tooth.
