Pygofer lobe rounded or subangularly produced, not reaching apex of subgenital plate posteriorly; dorsal processes movably articulated, rather long, well sclerotized, running along the inner side of pygofer lobe posteriorly. Subgenital plate gently curved upwards and rounded apically in lateral view, with 2¯4 basal macrosetae. Style narrowed apically, with two slender apical and one short triangular subapical processes; inner apical process slender, apparently longer than outer one.
