2A) with small bump midway on anterior margin of basal section, pair of setulose
papillae on base, 1 setulose
papilla posterior to base, and recurved, apically rounded hook.
2 times as wide as long, with several setae and densely covered with scales ventrally, with several setae dorsally, wider than flagellum; flagellomeres barrel-shaped, longer than wide, each with 2 horizontal circumfila and 2 vertical connectives, completely setulose
, with a few scales proximad of basal circumfilum, setae between the horizontal circumfila and short neck (Figure 2), flagellomeres 8 + ?
The basal portion of stem-vein setulose
dorsally, subcostal sclerite bare (fig.
9-5 cm, base oblique, apex long acuminate, margin dentate, adaxially green, sericeous, sometimes with sparsely white setulose
(1-2-celled trichomes); abaxially totally reddish with deep purple on almost 1/2 of the apical foliar area, sericeous, trichomes more dense on the veins; 10-11 veins on the larger side of the blade.
The non-functional wings are reduced to setulose
, strap-like appendages and the halteres are likewise reduced to barely visible nodular processes (Kirk-Spriggs et al.
All legs covered with very weakly barbed or nude setae; setulose
setae arise along ventral and ventro-lateral surface of tarsi.
1 mm wide, pappus of 2(3) divergent awns 1-2 mm long, antrorsely setulose
, some (mostly the outer) with corky small protuberances along the posterior side.
AL scutalae longer than PL scutalae; AL 75um, PL 52um long, both setulose
and blunt ended.
Wing: Base fuscous, basicosta black; costa setulose
only basally on ventral surface; costal spine shorter than cross-vein r-m; radial node bare, calypters brown; lower calypter slightly shorter than upper one; halter yellow.
Fruit 1(-2) seeded with apical stigmatic remains, subglobose, obovoid, ellipsoid, top-shaped, pear-shaped, short to long beaked; epicarp brown, yellowish or orange-red, not splitting when ripe, or splitting and spreading to expose the endocarp, tomentose, setulose
or glabrous, unarmed or armed with flattened, brown or black, up to 1,5 cm long spines; mesocarp 2-10 mm thick, fleshy or dry and starchy, [+ or -]fibrous; endocarp thick, stony, with flattened black fibers forming a star-like pattern around the germinating pores, these located in the distal part; endosperm homogeneous.
2 times longer than penultimate segment, tapering distally, with some spines on truncate distal margin; lateral surface of ultimate segment longitudinally carinate, with row of stiff setae; cross section trigonal; antepenultimate segment flattened dorsoventrally, with numerous heavily plumose setae on margins and with prominent cluster of long setulose
setae on low elevation at proximomesial part; coxa heavily setose, with large, bilobed epipod; no strap-like process on epipod.
