With the flattened hypophysis of left paramere, developed pointed hypophysis of right paramere, and presence of two lobal sclerites, and a basal spicule on endosoma (pygophore was missing from the genitalia vial attached to the pin). The claval setae are arranged in a vittate pattern ( Fig. 49 View Figs 43–53 ) confirming that this taxon is a member of Prolygus   .
