( Figure 9View FIGURE 9)

Spermathecal bulb T- shaped and with two dactyliform processes. Length of processes equal ( Figs. 9View FIGURE 9.a,b). Spermathecal bulb and processes surface have multiple pores and sperm tails ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9.c). Diameter of distal flange is equal to that of proximal; both are plate shaped ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9. d). Pumping region is short and smooth ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9.d). Length of proximal spermathecal duct about four times longer than distal one ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9.a). Distal spermathecal duct is muscularly ( Figs 9View FIGURE 9.e,f). Median spermathecal dilation with sclerotized rod present; its striated muscular walls regularly textured ( Figs. 9View FIGURE 9.b,g,h). Proximal spermathecal duct is muscularly striated ( Figs. 9View FIGURE 9.ı,i). Two ring sclerites lateral sıdes of genital chamber with opening of proximal duct ( Figs. 9View FIGURE 9.a,j,k).
