Description of female terminalia. Posterior margin of T5 elliptical, black with reddish microtrichose spots near posterior margin and golden microtrichosity ( Figs 60–62 View Figure ). T6 divided into two halves, reddish, with golden microtrichosity and a row of setae near posterior margin. Spiracles 6 and 7 located on T6. T8 absent ( Figs 57, 60 View Figure ). Epiproct not sclerotized, represented by two groups of fine, long setae. Cercus covered with long and fine setae. Hypoproct triangular, with long and fine setae near posterior margin ( Fig. 58 View Figure ). ST6 rectangular, covered with setae near posterior margin. ST7 longer than wide, bell-shaped, with a pair of setae near posterior margin (absent in some specimens). ST8 reduced, rectangular, covered with few long and fine setae ( Fig. 57 View Figure ). Spermathecae rounded, without grooves or marks on their surface ( Fig. 59 View Figure ).

Remarks. Peckia (E.) subducta  and P. (E.) collusor  share some morphological similarities in the female terminalia, such as a divided epiproct ( Figs 46 View Figure , 58 View Figure ). The female terminalia of P. (E.) subducta  differ from those of the other examined species of Euboettcheria  in having ST7 bell-shaped and T5 covered mainly with gray microtrichosity ( Figs 45, 48 View Figure , 57, 60 View Figure ).
