The epiphallic membrane runs backwards from the epiphallus to anchor on the zygoma and the edges of the ectophallic rami; there are no postepiphallic sclerites, but in some individuals there is a weak oblong thickening of the membrane ventrolaterally, anterior to the the cingular rami.
Paramere shallowly sinuate laterally, strongly sinuate against median lobe; apices broadly rounded, ventrolaterally denticulate.
