Legs: all coxae are ventrobasally produced into a toothlet
, and ventro-apically elongated into drop-shaped tips, so that the ventral contours look two-tipped, particularly in middle and hind coxae.
The prosternal spines are very short, only a little longer (and more acutely pointed) than the ventrobasal toothlets
of the mid coxae, their length a little bit less than the diameter of the tips of the palps.
