Rowson, who kindly allowed us to study his unpublished drawings): Vas deferens enters penis subapically
Two outer ventral carinae with 1-4 small teeth 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.
Vas deferens convolute along female genital tract, becoming more straight, wider and muscular upon reaching penis; it enters penis subapically
cutting off a short caecum.
Legs: relatively long; tarsus with tarsomere II divided; pretarsal claw not toothed subapically
9 mm; lower face without a median vertical carina extending from apex of clypeus to median ventral margin of carina around facial shield (Figures 1, 2); shield-shaped lower face with coriaceous microsculpture (Figures 2, 3); maxillary palp with second palpomere weakly swollen subapically
, strongly clavate; interantennal lamella long, with rugose sculpture (Figure 4), extending about 0.
Capsule loculicidal; perennials, hemicrytophytes, suffrutescent herbs, subshrubs, shrubs; stem apices at least vested by stellate trichomes, or stellate and glandular hairs, stipules not as above, if stem trichomes almost all simple subapically
, then hirsute, not appressed, flexible, bent, and also with stipules linear or linear-triangular (W.
45, 110); setal group C arranged in 2 rows near base and subapically
, but uniseriate medially (Fig.
Additionally, heros has the lateral edge of the lateral lamella straight, without abrupt widening subapically
; in kruegeri, the lateral lamella is subapically
wide (Mwabvu et al.
Mesothorax nearly as long as anterior lobe of pronotum, globular, mesonotum laterally with conspicuous longitudinal carinae leading to base of each forewing, midline sulcate, subapically
with paired lateral depressions.
Anterior two pairs of legs yellow; hind legs with coxa yellowish, with black marks, on inner and outer sides, trochanters blackish apically yellowish; trochantellus dorsally blackwish, lateroventrally yellowish, femur basally and subapically
black, yellowish brown centrally and apically, hind tibia black, centrally yellowish brown, tarsus black; fore wing hyaline, apically weakly infumate; pterostigma brown.
Sternite VIII broad, slightly projecting subapically
