( Figs 99–108 View FIGURES 99–102 View FIGURES 103–108 )

Poeciloterpa montana Schmidt, 1927:149   .

Schmidt (1927) described the species without any illustration. He did not dissect the type specimen but mention some male attributes. We provide here, the description and illustration of male genitalia ( Fig. 103–107 View FIGURES 103–108 ) of the holotype and photographs of the habitus with the labels ( Figs 99–102 View FIGURES 99–102 ).

Male terminalia ( Fig. 103 View FIGURES 103–108 ). In lateral view, pygofer ( Fig. 104 View FIGURES 103–108 ) dorsal margin longer than ventral margin, dorsal margin almost straight with small hump in anterior part, ventral margin regularly curved, posterior margin undulated with clear hump in middle, posterodorsal angle rounded. Subgenital plate ( Fig. 105 View FIGURES 103–108 ) in lateral view pointing straight posteriorly, thick with broadest part at mid length, gradually tapering towards a pointed apex curving up; lateral plate leaf-shaped pointing anteroventrally, intermediate plate absent. Paramere ( Fig. 106 View FIGURES 103–108 ) largely rounded with dorsal margin curving ventrally into a fold, ventral margin curved subapically then straight prior to rounded part, dorsal and ventral apex angled nearly rectangular directed posteriorly, set of very short setae located at dorsal and ventral margin of paramere and oriented dorsoposteriorly. Aedeagus ( Fig. 107 View FIGURES 103–108 ) with dorsal margin curving down then abruptly curving dorsally making a narrow angle then curving smoothly dorsally up to a stout apical extension which is not curling on itself, posterior protrusion largely rounded with apex oriented posterodorsally, posteroventral protrusion absent, ventral margin curving regularly without any break.
