Remarks. We illustrate here some previously unreported features of this species: forecoxa laterally compressed, strongly concave ventrally, with setae extremely reduced ( Fig. 26AView FIGURE 26), dorsum of forefemur with a patch of parallel microsculptures ( Fig. 26View FIGURE 26 B–C), and foremetatarsus excavation with hexagonal plates bearing two pointed projections ( Fig. 12View FIGURE 12 G–H). That these features are unique to this species helps considerably in its diagnosis.
