Prodorsum: Median part highly convex medially in lateral view (Fig. 19), beside the dorsosejugal region, excavated. Rostral and lamellar setae arising on a transversal line, both pairs phylliform, with serrate margin, but lamellar setae coarsenally, rostral setae minutely serrate (Fig. 86). Lamellar cuspis hardly observable. Interlamellar setae directed laterally, originating on a transversal lath, an another transversal lath present between the bothridia. Sensillus imbricate, barbed.
Notogaster: Dorsosejugal region excavated, median part highly convex. Notogastral surface areolate. Fourteen pairs of phylliform notogastral setae present, among them two pairs (c1, c2) directed forwards, long, four pairs in median position short, four pairs arising on the posterior slope of the median elevation long, and four pairs, different in their lengths, in posteromarginal position (Fig. 20).
Coxisternal region: Surface of mentum areolate, epimeral surface ornamented by irregular spots. Three pairs of apodemes (ap. 3, ap. sej., ap. 3) well observable, epimeral borders connected with each other. Sejugal and apodemes 2 directed obliquely backwards, ap. 3 slightly forwards. Epimeral setal formula: 3
-1-3-
3. Setae 1a, 1c, 2a, 3a short or minute, all others long and slightly dilated, their surface roughened. Discidium well developed, its outer margin rounded (Fig. 21).
Anogenital region: Genital and anal apertures removed farther from each other than the length of the genital plate. Ventral plate well chitinized, some tectum and ribbs observable. Anogenital setal formula: 4
-1-2-
3, all setae more or less dilated, thinner or broader, phylliform. Genital setae conspicuously long, also dilated. Lyrifissures iad well observable, originating far from the anal aparture.
Legs: Setae l" G of legs I and II asymmetrically phylliform, with serrate margin.
