incongrualis carneipennis A.E. Prout, 1926, Sarawak Mus. J.,
See the previous species. The costal process of the valve in the male is not
bifid apically. The female has a distinct zone of sparser scobination on the
eighth segment on each side of the ostium, and the pair of pockets in the pouch
anterior to this are associated with patches of denser scobination.
note. The species was originally described as a subspecies of incongrualis
where the male genitalia have the valve processes set much more basally, the
apical part being about twice as long as in carneipennis;
the uncus is much longer, strongly downcurved, with a distinctly broader distal
