Fixed finger with 16-18 mostly pointed teeth and with dental canals, two first distal teeth small, third subdistal tooth (mt) of the fixed finger distinctly modified in shape and deviated in orientation with respect to the others, dental row reaching up to slightly proximad to trichobothrium sb, usually level sensilla pc, 6-10 proximal microtubercles; tip of fixed chelal finger of male with a weak hollow on paraxial face, without subdistal protuberance (sp); one pair of long antiaxial sensory setae (as) at the base, one level and other strongly distad of lyrifissure fb, 0.025-0.040 mm long, distance between them 0.032-0.045 mm, fixed finger depth at the base 0.045-0.058 mm; 4-5 teeth at level of est/it occupying 0.1 mm, distance between apices 0.020-0.028 mm.
Antenna: scape obconic, as long as large, with few setae and scales ventrally, bare dorsally; pedicel globose 1.2 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 + ?, 1st and 2nd flagellomeres 2 connate.
Cephalic coxae three-fourth as long as the pronotum, slightly inflated proximad, more slender distad, internal face with distal lobe moderately developed, margin sparsely, denticulate: cephalic femora slender, faintly sigmoid, distal five-eigths tapering, very slender, median discoidal spine the longest of the three; external margin with five spines of wich the distal one is much the shortest; internal margin with nine spines arranged in the formula: iIIIIIIi; margins of the cephalic femora other than those sections bearing the regular spine series sparsely dentate, the medio-ventral one distinctly and regular serrate-dentate.
Antennae light brown becoming paler and greenish proximad. The lower portions of pronotal lateral lobes, a large area on lower portion of episternum 2, and distal portion of episternum 3 are whitish.

Both sexes of this form have increased black scaling proximad on the dorsum of both the forewing and hindwing and especially in the anal cell of the hindwing (see also Lewis 1985).
The precise shape of metacarpal I in ET 4296 (L85-6) is a process of uniform width with its exterior edge slightly curved back proximad (although it is broken and difficult to describe fully).
In ET 4396 (L85-6), the trochlear surface projects slightly more proximad and is oriented somewhat obliquely so that it is visible in internal view.
5I); file slightly concav, widest centrally, decreasing in width proximad and distad; teeth most densely spaced in central portion of file, their spacing increasing towards proximal and distal apices; all teeth of similar thickness, with irregular morphology at the proximal end of the file (Figs 5G, 9B).
Ventral hindwing duller black than on dorsum; submarginal pale blue band similar to that on dorsum paralleled distad by much narrower pale blue line from Rs to just caudad of [M.sub.3], more or less joined cephalad by rectangular pale blue macule in Sc+[R.sub.1]-Rs; another similar but broader macule in Sc+[R.sub.1]-Rs just proximad of submarginal band with a narrow blue line overlapping both in costal cell; medial band less well-defined than on dorsum consisting of individual and well-separated macules; postbasal band also vague, most prominent cephalad.
Ventral hindwing duller black than on dorsum; submarginal pale blue band similar to that on dorsum paralleled distad by much narrower pale blue line from Rs to [CuA.sub.2], vague rectangular pale blue macule in Sc+[R.sub.1]-Rs between the two; similar macule (more prominent on paratype) in Sc+[R.sub.1]-Rs just proximad of submarginal band with a vague narrow blue line overlapping both in costal cell; medial band less well-defined than on dorsum, prominent only in [CuA.sub.2]-2A and only a few pale blue scales cephalad (better defined on paratype); postbasal band vague throughout (better defined on paratype).
