ZhaO & S. LI  gen. n. BY THe MeDIAN APOPHYSIS NOT POINTeD, THe CONDUCTOR WITH BASAL LAMeLLA AND THe ePIGYNe WITH MIDDLe SePTUM, THe ANTeRIOR eDGe OF ePIGYNe WRINKLeD AND SCLeROTIZeD, THe POSTeRIOR eDGe OF ePIGYNe SCLeROTIZeD; FROM Draconarius  BY THe CYMBIAL FURROW LeSS THAN ½ THe LeNGTH OF CYMBIUM, THe MeDIAN APOPHYSIS SLICe-SHAPeD, ePIGYNAL TeeTH ABSeNT, AND THe SPeRMATHeCAe SIMPLe AND NOT CONVOLUTeD.
