Femora with simple, crenate anteroventral ridge. Metafemur subapically with stridulatory patch. Metatibia apically with uncus, without premucro. Abdominal ventrite 5 sparsely punctate, microreticulate, in basal third with median carina. Penis (Fig. 22b) with sides of body subparallel; containing sclerite of an inverted V; apex sparsely setose, with median, subtriangular extension; transfer apparatus compact, symmetrical; transfer process spiniform, pointing to apex of endophallus; apodemes 2.6 × as long as body; ductus ejaculatorius without bulbus.
