Figure 886435: dorsal (Morphbank #850950)

Mentions: The species is distinguished from its congener by the dorso-posterior white setose anepisternum (not macrosetose, Figs 5b, 6b, 7b), the distinct median longitudinal dark grey pubescent stripe on the abdominal tergites (Figs 5a, 6a), the absence of a pubescence pattern on the lateral abdominal tergites (Figs 5b, 7b), the presence of a dorsal bipartite protuberance on the aedeagus tip (Fig. 8c), and the presence of only short macrosetae on the tip of the pointed hypandrium (Fig. 8b​).
