female genitalia

Reproductive organs of the female sex. The external genitalia collectively are termed the vulva or pudendum and include the mons veneris, labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, fourchet, fossa navicularis, vestibule, vestibular bulb, Skene's glands, glands of Bartholin, hymen and vaginal introitus, and perineum. The internal genitalia are the two ovaries, two fallopian tubes, uterus, and vagina.

male genitalia

Reproductive organs of the male sex, including two bulbourethral (Cowper's) glands, two ejaculatory ducts, two glands producing spermatozoa (the testes or gonads), the penis with urethra, two seminal ducts (vasa deferentes or ducti deferentes), two seminal vesicles, two spermatic cords, the scrotum, and the prostate gland.

genitalia

A term usually implying the external organs of generation-the labia majora and minora and the clitoris in the female and the penis, scrotum and testicles of the male. Strictly, the genitalia also include all the other parts concerned with reproduction-the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries in the female; and the spermatic cords, vasa deferentes, seminal vesicles and prostate gland in the male.

Transrectal ultrasound is the gold standard for SV and internal genitalia assessment in cases of obstructive azoospermia.[sup.5] Pelvic MRI is required when ultrasound is insufficient or when it shows a major ductal dilatation.[sup.6] SV and vas deferens normally appear hyperintense on T2 due to the seminal fluid they contain in their light.
Barrientos & Rocha, the following morphological characters were considered: body length; shape of the fastigium verticis and fastigium frontalis; shape of the pronotal disc, carinae, and lobes; stridulatory file length and approximate number of teeth; length of tegmen; shape of femoral genicular lobes; fore tibiae spinulation; male external and internal genitalia, including terminal tergite, cerci, subgenital plate, and titillators; and in the female, shape and size of the ovipositor; basal lobe of ovipositor; subgenital plate and basal sclerites of subgenital plate.

In redescribing the genus and assigning new taxa we considered the characters provided by Hebard (1932) and additional new characters such as the males' internal genitalia, the females' valves, and distribution range.

Upon review of the literature it was discovered that the internal genitalia of both species had not been illustrated.
However, among the three male specimens available to me, there is variation in the shape of the cercus; as this is a species-specific character in several proctolabine genera, such as, e.g., Leioscapheus and Poecilocloeus, I decided to examine the internal genitalia of the specimens in question.
Normal taxonomic methods were employed; male and female internal genitalia were dissected from relaxed specimens, macerated in 5% KOH, and stained as necessary in acid fuchsin.
