Hair patch of frons undivided, with patch of scars extending to upper eye margin, nearly to suture; longitudinal veins without medial or apical enlargements; hypandrium V-shaped, narrowed medially; cercus with nine apical tenacula; membranous area of male terminalia with apical spicules; aedeagus symmetrical; parameres lateral to aedeagus with spine-like protuberances.

Description. Holotype male. Head. Eye bridge with four facet rows, separated by 1.7 facet diameters ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 13 – 20); interocular suture present, complete, inverted V-shape ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 13 – 20); hair patch of frons undivided, with patch of scars extending to upper eye margin nearly to suture ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 13 – 20).
