A narrow stripe adjoining the middorsal carina at each side visible only at its upper third, extending laterally to the lower third of the antealar carina. Mesepimeron with a black stripe occupying all the extent of the sclerite, continuing below into the mesinfrepisternum. It has a brownish orange area at its lower extremity. Small one at the anterodorsal part. Mesinfraepisternum black with a brownish orange anterodorsal part becoming brownish orange at its lower extremity and continuing below into the metinfraepisternum; a metepimeral one, black becoming brownish orange at its upper extremity ”.
