Frontal margin narrowly shelf-like, slightly reflexed, obtusely carinate, carina shallowly sinuate
in anterior view.
1C) with deep cavity, to some extent V-shaped, laterally sinuate
and medially excavated, ventroposterior margin (Fig.
The penis is at least slightly sinuate
in outline rather than simply-tapering and this feature does demonstrate a greater similarity to P.
Paramere shallowly sinuate
laterally, strongly sinuate
against median lobe; apices broadly rounded, ventrolaterally denticulate.
2C) with quite deep cup-shaped cavity, laterally sinuate
, medially produced into knob-like projection; lateral lobes subrounded with subtruncated apical margin with depression in middle; paramere (Fig.
Stridulatory file of left elytron (Figs 6-7) slightly sinuate
consists of 95 to 110 teeth; shortest distance between proximal and distal end 2.3 mm, in mid greatest width of teeth 0.025 mm, spacing of teeth in mid two third part of the stridulatory file about 35 per mm.
Ventral genital plates irregularly concave, with apical border membranous, widely sinuate
. Dorsal genital plates not fused, irregularly excavate, with rounded and irregularly reflexed apical border, with few short setae near the border (Fig.
Interestingly, in the tipulid Limonia simulans (Walker), sexual dimorphism was also observed in the shape of the last tarsal segments that in males are sinuate
on their inner surface, while in females these segments are linear (Adler & Adler 1991).

Morphometric length-weight relationships and length distributions of five populations of the freshwater bivalve Aspatharia sinuate
(Unionacea, Mutelidae) in Nigeria.
1F, G) semicircular anteriorly, extended into short straight-sided triangular point posterolaterally, with slightly sinuate
flap overhanging separating groove; fifth oostegite with row of long setae along posterior margin.
Leaves alternate; sessile; blades linear to linear-lanceolate, pinnately veined, margin sinuate
to dentate, revolute, glabrescent.
