Two pairs of orbital setae, the first proclinate and elevated on separate, raised glossy tubercles; second pair reclinate, 1/4 as long as first terminally globular pair.
Inner vertical seta very strong, reclinate and slightly divergent; no outer vertical seta.
Fronto-orbital bristles reclinate, rather short (posterior fronto-orbital bristle ca 0.
Diagnosis: The following combination of features will aid recognition of this genus: body elongate, tapering posteriorly; lunule low, bare; 2 pairs of strong reclinate fronto-orbital setae present; postocellar setae present, convergent; ocellar setae strong, proclinate; 2 postsutural dorsocentral setae present, lacking presutural dorsocentral seta; frons lacking black transverse band across anterior fronto-orbital setae; anepisternal seta absent.
2 Fronto-orbital setae reclinate or occasionally mesoclinate, frons lacking a proclinate seta.
Mesonotum with two narrow, weakly-defined, parallel, medial chestnut-brown pruinose vittae on dorsal surface, extending from anterior margin to region of anterior dorsocentral seta socket; anterior dorsocentral seta much shorter and finer than medial scutellar seta; reclinate supra-alar seta, slightly shorter than posterior dorsocentral seta; thoracic pleurae silver-grey, yellow pruinose in their centres; postpronotum silver-grey pruinose, with 8-10 fine black-brown setulae; anepisternum silver-grey pruinose, with yellow pruinose patches medially, with 19-20 fine setulae, the 5 larger grouped together at posterodorsal margin; katepisternum with dorsal katepisternal seta ca 0.
half length of medial scutellar seta); presutural seta moderately strong, longer and stronger than posterior notopleural seta; postalar setae shorter and finer than acrostichal setae; postpronotum with 3 strong postpronotal setae, the more dorsal longer and reclinate, the medial and ventral shorter and proclinate, with 12-14 finer setulae; anepisternum with more ventral anepisternal setae reclinate, surface with 34 moderately long setulae, those between anepisternal setae longer; ventral katepisternal seta very long and strong, dorsal strong, over half length of ventral, with 22 short, fine setulae at base and along posterior margin.
Anterior fronto-orbital bristles inclinate (incurved), posterior fronto-orbital bristle reclinate (Fig.
1+2] parallel; head longer than high; eye margins on fr strongly convergent towards antennae; fr never inflated and not projecting above and in front of eye margin; 1-3 well-developed reclinate orb; pvt often absent, but if present, usually only one minute setula or entirely missing in some specimens of the same species; carina very indistinct, at most just visible immediately below lunule only; gena narrow, less than half height of eye Paraphaniosoma gen.
