Gibson (1972) subdivided the genus into five subgenera according to the kind of vein 3RSb (tubular or spectral), shape of lower face (rounded or flat) and ocellar triangle (raised or not raised into pyramidal projection), and level of scutellum in reference to metanotum
(at same level or medially at higher level).
Receptive females mount males and feed on secretions from a gland on the males' metanotum
for a short period (5 sec to 5 min) before copulation and an extended period (30 sec to 30 min) after copulation (Bell 1979; Brown 1994).
33) Thorax hemispherical, metanotum
surpassed by scutellum (1); metanotum
not surpassed by scutellum (0).
Thoracic coloration: mesonotum and metanotum
brown, pronotum and post-notum light brown, paratergite and pleura pale but pale brown at the base of the katepimeron, katepisternum and coxae.
Prothoracic spiracle slit-like, very long, reaching nearly up to metanotum
. Ventral edge of paranota rounded.
Plate V: Features around the ocellar triangle and the metanotum
1A): Slightly elongated body; triangular light browned head with broad tylus, surpassing the juga and with four dark browned spines in the apex; small yellowish-browned pale eyes; ocelli absent; paled yellow four segmented rostrum surpassing the metacoxae; antennae with four segments, number I being smaller than segments II and III, and segment number IV fusiform, all of them with light browned coloration, except IV paled yellow; pale browned thorax; pronotum larger than the mesonotum and metanotum
; yellowish paled femora, tibiae, senescent glands and also the abdomen dorsally and ventrally.
