Description. Adult. Colouration. Vertex, pronotum and mesopraescutum yellow with small orange-brown dots. Head and thorax dark brown to almost black ventrally. Vertex and pronotum with each four darker spots. Eyes greyish; ocelli yellowish. Clypeus dark brown to almost black; tip of rostrum black. Antennal segments 1 brown, 2‒7 and 8 basally yellow, apex of 8, 9 and 10 black. Pro- and mesopleurites whitish yellow with fine orange dots. Mesoscutum brown with four longitudinal light lines; mesopleuron with each a dorsal and ventral black dot. Metanotum irregularly dark brown. Legs yellow, femora brown. Forewing ochreous with dark spot at the apex of vein Cu1b ( Figs 5View FIGURES 1 – 7, 15View FIGURES 8 – 21). Abdomen yellow to light brown. Dark colour in younger specimens lighter and less expanded.

Structure. Vertex ( Figs 43View FIGURES 36 – 49, 57View FIGURES 50 – 63) 2.0 times as wide as long, surface finely punctured; genae evenly rounded down; frons small, rectangular. Antenna ( Fig. 71View FIGURES 64 – 80) with one subapical rhinarium on each of segments 4, 6, 8 and 9; segment 9 slightly thicker than segments 8 and 10; relative length of antennal flagellar segments = 1.0/ 0.4/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.4/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.4; segment 3 longer than segments 4 and 5 together; segment 10 with longer terminal seta about 1.7 times as long as segment and shorter seta about 1.1 times as long. Clypeus weakly flattened, triangular. Pronotum transverse, long, about 5 times as wide as long. Meso- and metascutellum transverse, forming small tubercles. Metacoxa ( Fig. 85View FIGURES 81 – 88) with meracanthus flat, small tubercle and long, cylindrical, weakly curved membranous process on trochanteral cavity. Metatibia with an open crown of 5–6 apical sclerotised spurs. Forewing ( Figs 5View FIGURES 1 – 7, 15View FIGURES 8 – 21) rhomboidal, apex broadly, slightly asymmetrically; vein C+Sc almost straight, slender; vein Rs weakly curved backwards; vein M1+2 curved backwards; membrane semi-transparent; surface spinules coarse, arranged in irregular hexagonal pattern; radular spinules forming narrow, ill-defined bands along wing margin in cell m1, m2, and cu1. Terminalia as in Figs 96View FIGURES 89 – 99, 109View FIGURES 100 – 114, 122View FIGURES 115 – 127, 135View FIGURES 128 – 139, 145View FIGURES 140 – 151. Male subgenital plate, in profile, subrectangular with angular dorsal margin. Paramere straight, lamellar; inner face bearing a group of strongly sclerotised black pegs. Distal portion of aedeagus weakly inflated apically. Female proctiger cuneate, subacute apically; dorsal margin weakly concave. Subgenital plate sparsely pilose ventrally, subacute apically.

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (1 ♂, 1 ♀). Head width (HW) 0.84–0.84 (0.79±0.07), antenna length (AL) 0.62–0.70 (0.66±0.06), forewing length (WL) 0.86–1.04 (0.95±0.13), metatibia length (TL) 0.46–0.48 (0.47±0.01), male proctiger length (MP) 0.32, paramere length 0.26, length of distal segment of aedeagus 0.22, female proctiger length (FP) 0.07.—AL/HW 0.74–0.95 (0.84±0.14), WL/HW 2.27–2.76 (2.52±0.35), WL/forewing width 1.95– 2.23 (2.09±0.20), metafemur length/TL 0.70–0.71 (0.70±0.01), TL/HW 0.57–0.62 (0.60±0.04), MP/HW 0.43, FP/ HW 0.83, FP/circumanal ring length 3.18, FP/subgenital plate length 1.21.

Fifth instar immature ( Fig. 156View FIGURES 152 – 160). Colouration. Body brown, membranes light. Dorsal sclerites of head, thorax, wing pads and abdomen brown; base of caudal plate light brown. Antenna ochreous with apex dark brown to black. Apex of rostrum almost black. Apices of tarsi brown.

Structure. Body outline broadly heart-shaped. Antennae 8-segmented with one rhinarium on each of segments 3 and 5, and two on segment 8. Head and wing buds without macroscopic setae dorsally. Thoracic tergites small. Forewing buds large, with short, broadly rounded humeral lobes. Margins of wing buds bearing thick, truncate lanceolate setae ( Fig. 168View FIGURES 161 – 171). Legs moderately short and thick with fused tibiotarsus, claws absent; apex of tarsus blunt; tarsal arolium large. Caudal plate angular apically, bearing marginal and a median longitudinal row of dorsal lanceolate setae slightly thicker than those of wing buds; dorsum covered in tubercular microsculpture ( Fig. 176View FIGURES 172 – 184). Anus ventral; circumanal ring consisting of one row of elongate pores; relatively small, its width about 0.1 times the distance between its posterior margin and that of caudal plate.

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (1 immature). Body length (BL) 1.50, antenna length (AL) 0.60, forewing pad length (WL) 0.74, caudal plate length (CPL) 0.62, caudal plate width (CPW) 0.74.—BL/body width 1.21, WL/ AL 1.23, CPL/caudal plate width 0.84, CPW/circumanal ring width 7.40.
