-. Head laterally with small acutely pointed setae ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 1–8)....................................................... 2

2. Head uniformly covered with strong reticulate sculpture; abdominal segments II–VIII brown but head, thorax and abdominal segments IX–X yellow [ Taiwan].................................................................. taiwanus *

4. Postocular setae longer than dorsal length of compound eyes; mid-dorsal head setae small and acute; antennal segments II–III each with 2 capitate setae [ Thailand]................................................................ magnus *
