Subgenital plate of uniform width, slightly broader medially and basally, with short setae (15 E). Style short, broad basally ( Fig. 15 F View FIGURES 15 ). Connective as long as wide at base ( Fig. 15 G View FIGURES 15 ). Aedeagus narrowed at apical half in lateral view, with two subapical, glabrous spine-like processes, distal process 2x longer than the proximal process, gonopore arising distad of base of proximal process ( Figs. 15 View FIGURES 15 A–D).

Etymology. The species name is Samskrit meaning long for processes of the aedeagal shaft.
