7) somewhat rectangular but widest just ventrad
of midheight, thereafter tapered ventrally; surstylus apparently fused to ventral margin of epandrium as a tapered, ventral projection; cerci robustly developed, 2 x as high as wide in posterior view (Fig.
Nares 2-pored bilaterally; brood pouch protecting plates present and enlarged; male brood pouch with eggs in holotype; margins of pouch folds directed ventrad
, as in pouch closure for everted type of Herald (1959); brood pouch originating on anterior margin of first tail ring; membranous egg compartments beginning on first tail ring; pouch depth about 1/4 maximum tail depth; eggs well developed, large, in several layers.
Tegulum slightly spiraled perpendicularly to the main palpal axis, towards the tip of the cymbium, with distal laminar, triangular projection, bent at the tip and bearing a small hyaline protuberance and a serrated keel at the base of a filiform embolus, curved prolaterally dorsad, running a semicircle behind tegulum, appearing retrolaterally and pointing ventrad
in the male palp (Figs.
Male genitalia: ventral diverticulum recurved ventrad
There are low shoulder clavae that do not rise ventrad
of the venter, and there are low, umbilical swellings at the umbilical ends of the ribs.
05, n = 10), sharply enlarged above clypeus (near level of antennae in frontal view), with distinct median carina running from fastigium to level of antennae, but obsolete ventrad
Macrosculpture of metepisternum becoming villiform ventrad
The density of ribbing, the absence or near-absence of a keel, the ribs often meeting across the venter, the slight ventrad
increase in width of the ribs, and the generally rectiradiate ventral ends of the ribs all indicate Sowerby's species.
Median lobe elongate, apex ogival, bent ventrad
Proepisternum: Subrectangular, propleural suture straight, distinct; proepimeron strongly depressed medially, margin ventrad
of humeral angle deeply incised.
1) median apophysis (ma) with distal, curved sickle-shaped dorsal division (dd) narrow, tapered, with tip conspicuous, and directed ventrad
, a small, rounded ventral division (vd) of variable size but shape distinctive for each species; retrolateral tibial apophysis (rta) arising distally and laterally from near the ventro-distal rim (vr) with ectal division (ecd) divided into two subdivisions, dorsal one longer and curved and ental division (end) partly surrounded by ventral cymbio-tibial membrane (vcm); tibial ventral rim (vr) of ventral protuberance (vp) folded over to create a particularly deep depression in the ventral cymbio-tibial membrane (vcm).
21, 31, 41) bilaterally symmetrical, irregularly subquadrate in side profile, dorsal margin broad, ventral margin narrow, dorsal margin inclining to the ventrad
