Enantia mazai diazi  ( Plate 6 View Figure , Fig. 10).

The egg is 1298.64 µm long and 458.2 µm wide; it is 2.84 times longer than wide. The width/length ratio is somewhat greater than 1/3; the maximum diameter is at the equator. The narrowing is gradual, forming the neck from the first basal fifth (Nh= 30). The egg is oblong and slightly acuminate obpyriform, the base is convex-hemispherical and not very reticulate, slightly wider than the cusp, which is flat and less acute than in E. m. mazai  ; the neck is narrow and long. With 33 to 44 ribs (mode = 36), generally straight and coincident between axes, the curved ones are only in the apical area; they originate shortly after the base to the cusp. At the base, they are disorganized forming a grid of irregular polygons almost imperceptible because the end of the base is smooth. The axes are straight and laminar; at the equator they are from 11 to 13 (LoA= 6 or 7 and ShA = 4 to 7); in some eggs, two ShA were found between two LoA, as well as mergers in the basal zone. The ShA are separated from the perimicropylar area by 1 to 6 ribs, frequently 3. The grid is made up of wide rectangles (up to almost 3 times the width than the length) of constant amplitude, excepts toward the base where they are reduced and are subsquare; in the intercostal spaces, there is a slight roughness under staining. The symmetries are bilateral, radial or the chorion is asymmetric.
