Elaphropeza ephippiata  group

Members of this group are characterised by the following combination of characters: two male genitalic rod-shaped apodemes (ventral and ejaculatory) present ( Fig. 119View Figs 117-122); phallus short; long upturned bristle just above fore coxa absent; abdominal tergites 4 and/or 5 with squamiform setae (rarely absent); abdominal glands present between tergites 4 and 5. Additionally, in species of this group the hind tibia bears usually 1-2 anterodorsal bristles (but with quite numerous exceptions) ( Fig. 122View Figs 117-122), cerci are usually fused to form a single lobe ( Fig. 123View Figs 123-126) and the right surstylus is usually not prominent. In females, sclerites of abdominal segment 8 ( Fig. 121View Figs 117-122) are separated (except in E. feminata  sp. nov.) and sternite 8 is folded apically.
