(Figs 23, 24). The original description contains the following text about the genitalia structure: “Ohne Berücksichtigung der sowohl beim Männchen als auch beim Weibchen nahezu identischen Genitalstrukturen würde man sie für eine gut ausgeprägte Art betrachten“. The genitalia of both sexes show, however, clearly visible differences, especially in shape of juxta and antrum. Polymixis iatnana has a wide, shield-like juxta with a wide posterior extension and very small drop-like lateral arms.
(Figs 40, 41). The female genitalia are characterized by the very wide and shallow concavity on the posterior margin of the antrum, which extends from one lateral edge to the other, whereas this incision is in the middle of the posterior margin in the two other subspecies.
