The location of the anterior spermathecae and their pores in pre-testicular segments is unique among holandric species, and in Geogenia is known only in namaensis, distasmosa and quaera.
The location of spermathecae and their pores in pre-testicular segments possibly may be accounted for by variation or divergence occurring between holandric species.
Location of spermathecal pores, although being difficult to trace, in 8/9 and 9/10, is known also in holandric distasmosa.
Their spermathecal pores have been observed during species dissection in intersegmental furrow 9/10 and 10/11, which is unique in the holandric genus Tritogenia.
