Rowson, who kindly allowed us to study his unpublished drawings): Vas deferens enters penis subapically
Anteclypeus much longer than pointed mandibular plates, the latter reaching half the length of anteclypeus and flanked by extremely narrow, only subapically
arcuately extended maxillary plates reaching the dorsal side of bucculae.
27; based on a single dissection of P majus): Penis twice as long as wide, muscular, robust, with a strong retractor muscle inserting subapically
, next to the entrance site of the vas deferens, cutting off a short, spherical apical caecum.
Legs: Pro- and mesotibia covered with long, semierect setae but its base almost lacking setae; tarsomere II divided; pretarsal claw not toothed subapically
The new species has a large semicircular process posteromedially on tergum 9 that bears a distinct transverse ridge medially, the lateral lobe of tergum 10 is bifurcate apically, and cerci exhibit a small, sessile spine subapically
Epandrium slightly longer than wide and with U-shaped mid-basal incision in dorsal view; surstylus with dorsal process short and acute apically, ventral process wide and obtuse apically in lateral view; hypandrium distinctly longer than wide, slightly narrowing toward tip, with V-shaped middle incision apically; phallus narrowed and obtuse apically, subapically
without distinct lateral process; postgonite apically nearly straight and acute, directed backwards.
Gonst in lateral view with dorsally directed point subapically
DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by the tiny size, orange-red general coloration, paired obscure markings on the frons, darkened posterior corner of the pronotum and ventral margin of the propleuron, darkened posterior half of the membrane veins, bifurcate dorsal process of the left paramere, subapically
folded phallotheca, typically C-shaped, small endosoma, and generally small female genitalia.
Aedeagus large, apically bifurcate, subapically
3I), and the subapically
situate secondary gonopore.
Parameres narrow at base, and widening distally, each nearly triangular, outer margin usually with 1 or 2 processes apically and subapically
Femora yellow apically; fore femur with row of 1-3 posterodorsal setae subapically
, 3-5 posterior setae, 6 ventral setae; mid femur with row of 1-3 short anterodistal setae in distal part, 3 short anteroventral setae subapically
, 2 posteroventral setae subapically
; hind femur with no outstanding setae, posterior surface devoid of pruinosity; hind femur slightly enlarged relative to other femora, with fore femur slightly enlarged relative to mid femur.
