Ventrites 3-6 without sulci; aedeagus (Figs 31, 33) ostium dorsal, oriented left side up in repose; right paramere long, tip attenuate, left short, broader, narrowly rounded at apex; female reproductive tract (fig. 32) without dorsolateral bursal lobe, elongate spermatheca broadly attached laterally at base of common oviduct, spermatheca with appended gland, spermatheca with very small digitiform diverticulum near base, without spermathecal gland duct diverticulum.

Etymology

The genus is treated as Latin masculine and is a combination incorporating the Greek abaco, being broad and therefore like the genus Abax, and phrastos meaning “expression”. Given that these species are similar and related to Abacomorphus and Abacoleptus, the name roughly translates as yet “another expression of Abax.”
