Male genitalia. Pygophore(Fig. 6 A) elongate, caudal margin produced into acutely angled process and one row of fine setae along ventral margin. Subgenital plate narrow and long, with marginal setae. Style and connective similar to those in Pedionis garuda. Aedeagus (Figs. 6 C, D) similar to that in Pedionis lii, but with one pair of slender spine-like processes apically; dorsal connective as in Pedionis rufoscutellata Huang and Viraktamath. Female.
