Diagnosis. Central sclerite of hypandrium convex anteriorly, with postero-lateral, mid sized processes, and median, stout posterior process, bilobed distally; phallosome V-shaped anteriorly, with side struts slender, independent proximally; external parameres distally rounded, sclerotized, with a field of short spines; anterior pair of endophallic sclerites with stout inner arms, wider anteriorly, a central stem flanked by processes; outer arms arising from the central stem, pedicellate, each arm distally dilated to form a broadly elliptic, rugose body; mesal sclerite W-shaped, with anterior arms long, slender, and posterior arms stout, obtusely concave distally; posterior sclerites transverse, slender, each bearing an acuminate process medially on posterior border ( Fig. 292View FIGURES 287 – 292).
