Staminal filaments filiform 4.5-5 mm long, porrect, dull-yellow, base dilated purple stained, fused for 0.8-1.1 mm; anthers oblong 4.5-5.5 x 1.2-1.4 mm; connective light-yellow, 0.5-0.7 mm wide, pollen greenish-yellow to ochraceous.
pusilla mainly by its bigger perigone with broader and less depth concavity, outer tepals with narrowed claws, inner tepals with blades markedly narrower, and longer upwards, and with glandular trichomes spreading in a small area, stamens shorter, with porrect filaments, smaller anthers, and broader connective.
Staminal filaments filiform 3-4 mm long, erect or slightly porrect, purple at both ends, and light-purple in the middle part, base dilated lightpurple or stained purple, fused for 0.9-1.2 mm; anthers oblong 7.5-8.5 x 2-2.2 mm; connective purple at both ends, and light-purple in the middle part, 0.5-0.7 mm wide, pollen ochraceous to dark-brown.
laxa in the following aspects: tepals with claws pallid translucent, with few deep central concavity, blade of inner tepals deeply folded, with a deep central depression, marked by a darker area covered by ochraceous glandular trichomes, and erect or slightly porrect style branches, with stigmatic trichomes prolonged on the proximal portion of the adaxial crests.
The palps are somewhat Charaxes-like, being S-shaped and porrect; the basal sensory patch of the palpus is broad and elongated, which places Anaeomorpha somewhere between Prepona and Polygrapha Schatz, the latter genus as a member of Anaeinae group (SALAZAR & CONSTANTINO (2001)) in their Synthesis of Colombian Charaxids consider that the taxonomic position of the species is probably located between Archaeoprepona and Pseudocharaxes Salazar & Constantino: type species "Paphia" (Polygrapha) xenocrates Westwood, 1850, but this hypothesis is not supported by the evidence presented".

westi by the presence of a field of porrect, dagger-like spinules at the apex of the RTA-like bulge (Figs.
