Diagnostic Description

Corners of the last thoracic segment with a strong spine. Terminal segment of P5 in females forms a strong spine twice as long as the second segment and is coarsely serrated on both sides. The second segment of P5 is longer than wide and bears a seta three times as long as the terminal spiny segment.
