The third component is a thin aponeurosis 7 in the occipital crest area, ventromedially to the second component.
Each maxillary process grows ventromedially to meet and fuse with the lateral nasal processes, and each ultimately fuses with the medial nasal process, thus forming the external opening of the primitive nasal cavity and the upper lip.
Group I consists of two dendrites located ventromedially; one of these is the ampullary sensory neuron (Fig.
2B), a small sensillum near the origin of a large claw-like galea; maxillary palp with small sensillum near origin of 1st segment (0.06-0.08 mm, x = 0.07 mm), 2nd segment (0.09-0.12 mm, x = 0.11 mm) with 2 distal hair-like sensilla, 3rd segment (0.11-0.13 mm, x = 0.12 mm); with a hair-like sencillium medially; labium sub-rectangular with two small sensilla ventromedially and six peg-like spines dorsodistally, two hair-like sensilla ventrodistally near the base of each palp; labial palp with small sensillum near origin of 1st segment (0.04-0.07 mm, x = 0.05 mm), 2nd segment (0.07-0.09 mm, x = 0.08 mm) with prominent sensillum.
The angle formed by the two processes of the scapula, the dorsally projected scapular process and the ventromedially projected acromial process, is around 115 degrees (Fig.
Mystax mostly black with white setae ventromedially (weak on lateral epistomal margins), setae slightly better developed ventrally.
Mystax mostly black with a variable number of yellow setae ventromedially. Frons and vertex: Blackish, strongly red-gold pruinose, frons black setose laterally, ocellar tubercle black setose.
Medial to this groove there is a ventromedially expanded process, which forms the radiale articular surface.
5), slightly concave ventromedially; phallic complex trifid with the lobes mostly fused anteriorly (Fig.
40, hy) long, with broad-based rounded-truncate dorsobasal lobe, posterior bridge dorsally and ventrally produced (rounded to slightly angulate in profile); hypandrial arms narrow basally, expanded apically (viewed laterally), with 2 setulae proximal to postgonite, the more lateral ventrally directed, the medial ventromedially directed (obscured by epandrium on Fig.
The prezygapophyses, whose articular surfaces are oriented upwards, inwards and slightly forwards, are ventromedially fused, but not the postzygapophyses, which are ventrally separated at the base of the neural spine by a rounded notch.
57, hy) long, with broad-based rounded-angulate dorsobasal lobes; posterior bridge dorsally and ventrally produced (angulate in profile); hypandrial arms broad basally, narrowed apically (viewed laterally), with 2 setulae proximal to postgonite, the more lateral ventrally directed, the medial ventromedially directed (obscured by epandrium on Fig.
