Ob/Gyn A zone of red dots representing stromal papillae and blood vessel loops reaching the surface epithelium, seen by colposcopy which, when found, mandates a biopsy, as the pattern may reflect blood vessel changes of neoplasia.
Discussion: Species in this genus are distinguished based on characteristics of pronotum punctation and maculation, connexiva coloration, and characters related to male genitalia and medial lobes of the 8th abdominal tergum.
The plainware excavated in 1997 is followed by pottery decorated with both incising and punctation. Finally, applied relief ware appears at the end of the ceramic sequence at the site along with both incised and punctate material.
Other characters helpful for recognition include: small body size (1 - 6 mm long from clypeus to elytral apex); body generally elongate-cylindrical to elongate-flattened, subglabrous to setaceous; head prognathous, exposed from above; antennae usually not concealed from above, widely separated, usually with an abrupt 1 - 2 segmented antennal club (not abrupt in Crowsonius Pakaluk & Slipinski and some Leptipsius Casey), never 3 segmented; pronotum variable; mesocoxal cavities open; elytra with strong puncture rows or with dense, confused punctation; abdominal ventrite 1 usually as long as 2 - 4 combined; and pygidium well-sclerotized, punctured (Bousquet 2009, McElrath et al.
Mesosoma with light punctation, space between punctures more than size of punctures, each puncture with a hair; hind femur with small tooth at anterior side on single lobe, a tooth shaped structure present at the distal end of the femur, length of femur 2x its maximum width; tibia with 2 carinae at anterior end, with 2 apical spurs; marginal vein of fore wing slightly away from wing margin, postmarginal vein very short, stigmal vein short with distinct uncus.
