Thorax with black or white setae dorsally and long, strong, black, long setae laterally. Wings. First posterior cell open at wing margin ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 1 – 5 a). Abdomen. Tergites IV ̶VII are red medially. Black legs with white setae, most abundant on the coxae. Bright black male terminalia with gonostylus with a toothed blade on superior edge ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 1 – 5 b). Variability. Some specimens with black and white setae on facial gibbosity.
