Male genitalia

Black-brown with gonostyli slightly paler ( Figs 32–33 View Figs 30–35 ); pygofer higher than long and with posterior margin nearly straight in lateral view ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); anal tube slightly transverse, 0.93 times as long as broad and with margins strongly projecting laterally on basal ⅔ into semi-circular lamina in dorsal view, apical ⅓ with lateral margins diverging towards apex ( Fig. 33 View Figs 30–35 ); apical margin acutely rounded in lateral view ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); strong hump dorsally near base ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); gonostyli elongate, 1.93 times longer than high, reaching apex of anal tube ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); ventral margin broadly rounded to apex and dorsal margin strongly sinuate and with ante-apical notch in lateral view ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); dorsal margin with strong, hook-shaped tooth at midlength pointing anteroventrally ( Fig. 32 View Figs 30–35 ); dorsal margin projecting laterally, semi-circular in dorsal view, with basal lobe and slightly folded internally near notch ( Fig. 33 View Figs 30–35 ).
