DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by the generally pale, oval body, yellowish shiny dorsum, large brown patches and black spots on the mesoscutum and scutellum, hyaline hemelytron, a dark brown spot each on the apices of the clavus
, embolium, and the inner medial margin of the cuneus, and almost entirely pale legs (Figs.
Dorsal coloration: Head orange, with apex of juga, and outer face of ocelli black; antennal segments I and IV dark orange, and II and III dark orange with apical joint brown; pronotum orange hazel with humeral spines black; scutellum orange hazel, basally with 2 black spots lateral to midline; clavus
orange hazel; corium orange hazel with 3 black spots near middle third of endocorium; hemelytral membrane dark brown; connexival segments III to VI glossy orange, VII glossy orange with posterior margin brown; abdominal segments III to VI glossy orange, VII glossy orange with wide brown spot at middle third.
1): Elongate, completely covering the abdomen; lateral margin nearly straight, slightly wider at level of apex of embolium, clavus
elevated with respect to corium surface; claval suture impressed; embolium well delimited, apex ending close to cuneal fracture, not greatly expanded inward; cuneus slightly longer than wide; membrane with two cells.
The primary characters used for species identification were, not in order of importance, (1) number of coremata lobes and the shape of (2) clavus
, (3) sacculus, (4) costal process, (5) basal sclerite of clasper, and (6) juxta.
DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by its large size (3.47-4.31), the large eye, the rather large brown or reddish dots, which are distributed rather evenly on corium, clavus
and cuneus, with small interspersed areas free of dots (Fig.
Dorsal coloration: head black; antennal segments I to III yellow, IV pale brown; pronotum and scutellum shiny orange; clavus
shiny orange with black punctures; corium shiny orange with black discoidal spot adjacent to inner face of apical margin; hemelytral membrane pale brown; connexivum black with lateral border shiny orange; abdominal terga III to VI orange, VII black.
