The male genitalia are similar to those of suffusa, except the saccus is much broader, the most interior process dorsally on the saccular margin of the valve is shorter, blunter, the central process is more robust and more strongly and evenly incurved, and the outer process is flexed slightly outward at the apex. The uncus is more expanded subapically.
