Eyes two; ALE touching. Sternum with anterior channels, surface smooth, without pits, microsculpture absent; setae densest laterally. Labium anterior margin deeply incised. Endite tip with broad, recurved lobe flanked on either side by modified seta. Palpal apophysis with narrow, elongated tip; cymbium not fused with bulb.
