2F-H) tubular, relatively long, narrow at base and distinctly expanded towards apex; apical part bearing semicircular ribbon-like plate at left side arising from dorsal of aedeagus, apex rounded and slightly broadened, denticulate along inner and approximately 1/3 of outer margins, near base of plate slightly projected triangularly in lateral view; on right side of aedeagal shaft with pediform
flat plate directed anteriorly and also another wingshaped lobe joining pediform
plate as triangular flake medially; pediform
plate and wing-shaped lobe connect ventrally, both with serrated margins.
To some degree, their pronounced differences in size and shape correlate with function, since the large and pediform
Mxp2 and Mxp3 handle large prey items, whereas the smaller and flattened Mx1, Mx2, and Mxp1 enable the animal to accurately manipulate even very small food objects.
