Notes Posterior of female headshield. Posterior margin indicated by arrows. Shows rounded margin with notches and two rows of faint polygons extending inward. The three median head pores are equidistant from each other, and connected by a continuous channel. The distance between the posterior pore and the posterior margin of the headshield is much less than the distance between the posterior and anterior pores. The lateral pores are opposite the anterior median pore and separated from this pore by more than the distance between the posterior and anterior median pores. Collected 18 May 2017.
