Holotype ♂. Body length 4.5 mm.

Diagnosis. Fronto-orbital plate with dark brown pruinosity. Palpus dark brown to brown, orange at extreme distal tip. Tergite 6 almost as long as syntergosternite 7+8, narrowed medially. Epandrium with V-shaped spot anteromedially.

Head ( Figs 15–17View FIGURES 15–20). Frontal pruinosity velvety dark brown, with distinct dorsal vitta projecting laterally to ocellar triangle reaching vertex area ( Fig. 16View FIGURES 15–20). Height 1.4X the length; width 1.2X the height. Frons 1.7X wider than long. Fronto-orbital plate with dark brown pruinosity in frontal view ( Fig. 16View FIGURES 15–20). Genal groove area reddish brown, large, bare; gena predominantly with gray-yellowish pruinosity; postgena dark brown pruinose ( Fig. 17View FIGURES 15–20). Palpus brown to dark brown, orange at extreme distal tip.

Thorax ( Fig. 18View FIGURES 15–20). Mesonotum dark brown to black with a faint gray pruinose stripe between dorsocentral setae, almost reaching third dorsocentral setae pair, more distinct when seen under anterior incident light. Scutellum dark brown to black; in dorsal view with somewhat inconspicuous gray pruinosity when seen under anterior incident light. Legs ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 15–20). Coxae and femora brown to dark brown. Tibiae brown, yellowish on basal half. Tarsi light brown. Wing ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 15–20). Slightly browner infuscated along anterior (costal) half.

Epandrium with scattered setae on posterior edge, with a whitish V-shaped spot anteromedially ( Fig. 22View FIGURES21–26). Cercus as long as epandrium, with sparse setae on anterior margin and outer surface ( Fig. 21View FIGURES21–26). Hypandrium 3.2X longer than epandrium ( Figs 21–23, 25View FIGURES21–26). Phallapodeme 2.8X longer than hypandrium (phallapodeme lost after description). Basiphallus almost as long as distiphallus ( Figs 21, 24View FIGURES21–26). Distiphallus suboval in ventral view, with small and indistinct fissure distally ( Figs 23, 25View FIGURES21–26). In ventral view, pregonite with distal mesial keel subrounded ( Figs 23, 25View FIGURES21–26); postgonite as a small thin sclerite ( Fig. 24View FIGURES21–26).
