Tergites IX and X ( Fig. 26 View Figure ) connected by membrane; tergite IX about 1.7 times as wide as long, emarginate apically; tergite X small, widely rounded apically. Sternite IX ( Fig. 24 View Figure ) elongate, about 2.3 times as long as wide, apically widely rounded, apicolaterally finely punctate, with dense pubescence. Sternite X ( Fig. 25 View Figure ) connected by membrane to sternite IX, partly membranous, with two elongate sclerotized plates. Аedeagus ( Figs 27–28 View Figure ) 3.2 times as long as wide. Median lobe elongate, robust, slightly surpassing parameres, subparallel-sided, apically distinctly narrowed, with apex narrowly rounded, with moderately long basal struts. Paramere elongate, subparallel-sided for most of its length, abruptly constricted subapically, with subapical hook, apical portion covered with long setae, apex narrowly rounded; subapical hook short, thick, its outer portion indistinctly emarginate.
