Manoba shrimptoni

9mm, 10mm. The facies is a larger, paler version of that of
punctilineata, but the submarginal is much more oblique, and more basal black markings are restricted to the costal zone. The male genitalia have the harpe in a more distal position to that of the previous three species, and it is broader, apically rounded and strongly flexed. The aedeagus has a robust apical hook, but the vesica lacks ornamentation.
