Description

MALE TERMINALIA. In lateral view, posterior margin of pygofer hump shaped in middle, last third abruptly truncated ( Fig. 8E View Fig ). Subgenital plates ( Fig. 8F View Fig ) very long relative to height of pygofer with fine tapering appendage longer than main plate, dorsal margin regularly convex and slightly curving on basal part, ventral margin roughly straight. Sterno-lateral plate present and roughly bean-shaped. Intermediate plate present, square shaped with a corner truncated, linking internal sides of lateral plate and subgenital plate. Paramere ( Fig. 8G View Fig ) dorsal margin rounded then regularly curving up to apex. Lateral margin with spine located subapically pointing dorsally, ventral margin rounded then sharply angled subapically pointing ventrally, apex without any spines. Aedeagus ( Fig. 8H View Fig ) with basal third of dorsal margin regularly bent, basal half enlarged then largely narrowed in the middle and gradually enlarging up to apex, roughly C-shaped, ventral margin regularly curved, apical extension pointing posteriorly, posterior protrusion axe-shaped with long thin extension prolonging the edge ventrally and slightly curving, postero-dorsal protrusion absent.

Type Locality

Philippines: Luzon: Mount Banahao, Quezon Province.

Distribution

Philippines: Luzon Island, Baguio, Quezon province, Mountain province; Visayas, Negros Island.

Remarks

Schmidt (1920) described this species from a single male specimen with few details on the male terminalia. Here, we provide, a detailed illustration and description of male terminalia from identified specimens using Schmidt description ( Fig. 8 View Fig ), along with photographs of the male holotype and its labels ( Fig. 9 View Fig ). The coloration of the specimen we identified and the holotype are different but the specimen from which we illustrated the male terminalia ( Fig. 8 View Fig ) has a brighter coloration and is the closest to the description given by Schmidt while the holotype has a faded coloration.
