Diagnosis. Belonging in species group “2”, subgroup 4, in the classification of Eertmoed (1986). It differs from the other species in the genus by the shape of the phallosome ( Fig. 54View FIGURES 50–56), epiproct and paraprocts ( Figs 41, 42View FIGURES 36–42).

Color. Head ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 36–42) brown, vertex, front and postclypeus brown, anteclypeus, labrum, mandibles, and maxillae pale brown, labium cream. Compound eyes dark brown, ocelli hyaline in a dark brown area. Antennae and maxillary palps brown. Pronotum pale brown, mesonotum and metanotum brown, thoracic pleura pale brown to cream; legs pale brown, tibiae and tarsi darker. Forewing membrane almost hyaline, ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 36–42); veins brown, with brown spots along some veins and at wing margin. Hindwings hyaline ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 36–42). Abdomen cream, with segmental spots pale brown, clunium and hypandrium brown, clunium with narrow anterior edge dark brown; epiproct and paraproct pale brown, paraproctal prong and phallosome brown.

Morphology. As in diagnosis plus the following: head vertex emarginate, slightly below the upper margin of the compound eyes ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 36–42); these large, with interommatidial setae. D is 0.60 the length of the head in front view. Forewings ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 36–42); membrane pterostigma with setae, without spur veins. Hypandrium triangular, broad, with medium sized setae and macrosetae. Phallosome bilobed anteriorly ( Fig. 40View FIGURES 36–42), widened distally, external parameres rounded laterally, endophallic lobes broadly triangular, arms of internal parameres bow shaped, fused posteriorly on the midline. Epiproct semioval ( Fig. 41View FIGURES 36–42), emarginate apically, with rounded small tubercle meso-distally, with six setae mesally, posterior setal field as illustrated. Paraprocts ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 36–42) with medium sized setae and macrosetae as illustrated; mesal prong elongate and strongly curved apically; sensory fields with 21 trichobothria on basal rosettes.
