Following Rosen and Gordon (1953), we measured height of gonopodium (maximum height distal to first serra), number of serrae, number of segments from serrae to hook on ray 4p (hereafter called distal hook), number and length of hooks at distal tip of ray 5a (hereafter referred to as proximal hook), distance from distal hook, number and length of distal hooks, number of segments from distal hook to tip, distance from distal hook to tip, length of gap, maximum height of gap, number of segments from elbow to tip, number of elbows, and number of segments from elbow to serrae (Fig.
