4 mm wide at apex, subtrigonous, greenish, inconspicuously white-lanate to glabrous; epigynous tube inconspicuous; placentation apical; ovules obtuse to obtusely
Head with epistoma feebly convex on disc, finely subregularly sparsely punctured, punctation somewhat denser and coarser distally; clypeus faintly sinuate at middle, rounded at sides, almost thickly bordered, the edge upturned; genae subauriculate, obtusely
angulate, elongately ciliate, distinctly protruding more than eyes; frontal suture finely impressed, nearly faint at middle; front relatively somewhat densely punctured.

Color dorsally very dark brown to black with feeble metallic luster, particularly on pronotum; metasternum anteriorly only feebly tumid medially; well-developed males with anterior clypeal margin obtusely

DIAGNOSIS: This species is recognized by the following combination of characters: slender species (Figs 9, 10), dorsum mostly fuscous, with orange and white markings; clypeus elliptoid, distally rounded (Figs 2b, 4c, f); frontal plate evenly arcuate, obtusely
tapered posteriorly (Figs 2a, b, 4c, d); first antennal segment elongate, bottle-shaped (Figs 2b, 9, 10); second antennal segment cylindrical (Figs 9, 10); labium short; hind tibiae linear, with elongate, pale bristlelike setae; genital opening of pygophore without tubercles (Figs 2g, h, 11a); left paramere L-shaped (Fig.
4 cm in diameter (including floral bracts); floral bracts narrowly subtriangularovate, apex acuminate, distinctly canaliculate, navicular, strongly recurved, slightly exceeding the petals, greenish-yellow toward base and yellow-green near the apex and margins, thin in texture, abaxially densely to subdensely white-lepidote, nerved, adaxially inconspicuously and sparsely white-lepidote to glabrous, 25-29 x 10-13 mm, the basal ones ecarinate, the upper ones obtusely
if at all carinate, margins subdensely to laxly spinose, spines narrowly triangular to acicular, prevailing retrorse, uncinate, pale yellowish-castaneous, 0.
2); lateral carinae of the prozona reduce posteriorly; disc of pronotum with numerous tubercles; humeral angles obtusely
angular, lacking abbreviated carinae between humeri; hind process of pronotum long cone-shaped, apex slightly exceeding the apex of hind femur.
4: 1); anterior aaargin distinctly arched, posterior margin obtusely
excavated; median carina distinctly ridged, reaching or not reaching anterior margin, lateral carinae trongly ridged, not attaining posterior margin, with two short carinae between eyes and tegulae; disc of pronotum shallowly depressed, with small circular depression medially at each side of median carina.
Leaves erect to spreading, rosulate, 8 to 20 in number, 75-120 cm long; leaf sheaths narrowly elliptic, 4-12 x 2-4 cm, castaneous with a thin pale margin, nerved, proximally very densely covered with asymmetrical and shaggy dark ferruginous trichomes; leaf blades linear, attenuate, 3-7mm wide, involute, inconspicuously and obtusely
plicate, densely ferruginous lepidote toward the sheath especially abaxially becoming scattered dark punctate-lepidote toward the apex.
Pronotum (Figs 21, 22), integument markedly pitted throughout, in dorsal view the anterior margin very slightly curved, almost straight; posterior one curved or very obtusely
angulate; most females short-winged, their tegmina reaching the hind margin of the third abdominal tergite; about 1% of them long-winged, though their tegminae do not quite reach the abdominal end, all males long-winged, tegminanotorbarely reaching abdominal end.
