Epandrium short (less than half as long as broad in dorsal view), hardly separated into two lobes distally; proctiger
well-developed, jutting out far beyond epandrium; gonocoxites well-developed, oval in shape (lateral view), distomedial lobe well-developed, with three sharp medially directed claw-like processes (ventral view); gonostyli well-developed, elongate, straight; hypandrium slightly shorter than wide (ventral view), broad proximally, tapering to somewhat truncate, slightly bilobed distal end; aedeagus largely hidden from view, straight, weakly sclerotized.

Dorsal part of posterior foramen of segment VII, including (a) a pair of large, ventral laterotergites VIII connected by (b) an unpaired segment IX formed by a transversely rectangular sclerite (with a thin dorsal bridge and lateral arms, and a complex ventral, not fully understood ventral connective), and (c) the frame IX filled up by a large, circular proctiger
including a ring-shaped segment X (c1) and bivalved segment XI (c2).
He also listed other characters found in that species group, such as the lack of postanal filaments on the proctiger
of the male and the smooth and shiny basal area of the propodeum of both sexes.
