T. sieberti  species-group

This group is close to the T. pulchra  group. Gonocoxites are basally at some distance. Hypandrium broadened over at least 1/3 of its length. Ventral distiphallus is a large sinuous cross sclerite, usually shorter, or as long as the gonocoxites; dorsal distiphallus seemingly fixed to the basiphallus lobe shaped like an anchor, less broad than its ventral counterpart, laterally not overlapping the ventral distiphallus.
