Fronto-orbital area with 2 pairs reclinate fronto-orbital setae, with posterior seta equidistant between anterior seta and inner vertical seta, and with anterior seta slightly closer to lunule than to posterior seta; anterior edge of frons along lunule black, not reaching eye margin laterally.
Chaetotaxy: 3 strong orb, 2 hind orb reclinate, anterior inclinate, pvt distinct and crossed, 1 vti and 1 vte, postocular setulae distinct, generally short, more or less in one row, lower postgenal seta present or absent; mouthparts normal, palp rather broad, almost disc-shaped; antenna with third segment round and arista bare.
Chaetotaxy: 3 strong orb more or less reclinate, but also lateroclinate, anterior orb inclinate or reclinate; pvt distinct and crossed; strong vti and vte; postocular setulae distinct, especially behind vt, others short, more or less in one row, lower postgenal seta present; mouthparts normal, palp round or almost round.
Chaetotaxy: 3 orb, anterior inclinate, middle and posterior orb reclinate, all equidistant from each other; 1 vti and 1 vte a little longer than hindmost orb; pvt crossed, about as long as anterior orb, ocellars a little more than half length of vt; all setae brown.
Diagnosis: Yellow species with very large hypopygium with complex structures easily visible externally; spinose elongate cerc; anterior orb reclinate, posterior 2 orb lateroclinate; 1 strong posterior dc with shorter seta anterior to it.
Chaetotaxy: 3 reclinate orb with short setula in front, 2 long ocellars widely spaced almost parallel, 10 fr setulae and a pair of long setae in front of oc triangle; 1 vti and 1 vte, pvt convergent.
Chaetotaxy: 2 reclinate orb with 3 short pale setulae in front, 1 vti and 1 vte, minute pvt (absent in some specimens); ocellars long and divergent with pair of short setulae behind these in between posterior ocelli; 14 setulae scattered on fr, but 6 of these in front of oc triangle about as long and strong as anterior orb; postoculars in one row; gena pale yellow and very pale yellow setulose with stronger setulae on oral margin, gena at middle about 0.
