Terminalia in lateral view with surstylus curved slightly backward, cercus with apical hook ( Fig. 79 View FIGURES 75–80 ); in posterior view cerci with narrow base, broader midway then tapered to blunt tip ( Fig. 80 View FIGURES 75–80 ); phallus in lateral view with medium-long, stout epiphallus with slight backward curve ( Fig. 169 View FIGURES 163–172 ); broad in dorsal view, with circular hypophallic lobes and an apical fork on acrophallus ( Fig. 170 View FIGURES 163–172 ); T6, STS7+8, pre- and postgonite, ejaculatory sclerite and ST6 as in Fig. 227 View FIGURES 222–228 ; ST1–5: ST3–4 narrowed, as in Fig. 270 View FIGURES 266–279 .

Female. Similar to male except frons 0.246 (0.24–0.26/5) of head width at narrowest. T6 of FU shape, nearly flat; T7 with wide and deep indentation on anterior edge; T8 as pair of sclerites ( Fig. 314 View FIGURES 312–317 ); ST6–8 and hypoproct as in Fig. 358 View FIGURES 350–369 ; spermathecae filiform ( Fig. 399 View FIGURES 370–400 ); ST1–5 as in Fig. 443 View FIGURES 439–453 .
