the Hottentots Holland , Palmiet, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Berg River and
Wellington Mountains. Little is known about its biology but larvae
probably feed on plant roots such as Restioniaceae. 24mm.
The aedeagus (penis and
parameres) appears almost symmetrical although the parameres (claspers) are
slightly asymetrical (therefore the anal sternite evenly rounded); penis feebly
sclerotized (cuticle not hardened) with transverse ribbing; clypeus meets labrum
(components of the head ) on even level. Compare genitalia of species groups.
