Foretibia with two dorsal setae, anterodorsal row of strong orange setulae, posteroventral uneven row of five to six strong setae continuous with three strong ventroapical setulae. Foremetatarsus with anterior excavation bearing a row of tiny setulae and three strong setulae basal to anteroapical process, anteroapical setulose process, strong seta at excavation base, strong seta at base of anteroapical process ( Fig. 8H View FIGURE 8 ). Foremetatarsus ratio 0.19. Posterior face of hind femur with broad basoventral group of tiny blunt setulae tapering toward ventral margin, dorsal setulae thicker ( Fig. 18 View FIGURE 18 C–D).
