Retrolateral tibial apophysis ectal division located centrally along length of palpal tibia, bulbous at base, narrowing distally to acute, curved point; ental division prominent (Figs.
1, 2) with conductor shaped as large, distally-projecting, blade-like and truncated apophysis; median apophysis distinct, white, and rounded distally, pars pendula, transparent along with dark, curved embolus inside presenting only two loops ventrally; ectal division of retrolateral tibial apophysis long, curved, arising dorsally; ental division large, flattened, curved, bent, acute; retrolateral surface of cymbium with a horseshoe-shaped indentation.
