segments longer than wide; F1 the longest funicle
segment, F2 to F6 more or less subequal in length, just slightly shorter than F1; F1 with 1 or 2, F2, F3, and F4 each with 2 or 3, F5 with 3, and F6 with 3 or 4 short mps.
The seeds of the species analyzed in this study belong to the type I (CORNER, 1976), which is characterized by the "vascular supply as a single bundle extending round the seed from the funicle
more or less to the micropyle".
The female antenna has 8 segments, both funicle
and club with 3 segments covered with fine, short setae.
Antennal scape longer than funicle
, club shorter than funicle
Head with frontovertex broad; Antenna with third segment of funicle
usually slightly longer than broad; clava about as long as pedicel and funicle
2); scape slightly shorter than funicle
and at most reaching eye, funiculus with seven segments, antennal club compact and only one segmented (Figs.
The antenna of the EGW adult female had 9 segments and it had a light brown color; the number of flagellomeres in the anellus, funicle
and clava were 1, 3 and 3, respectively; the scape presented a slightly flattened column; the length of pedicel was 2 to 2.5 times its width; the funicular segments were equal in length and width; the 3rd clava was thicker than the funicle
, with the length being equal to the sum of the 2nd and 3rd funicles
; the length and width of the 1st claval segment were equal; the transverse section of the 2nd claval segment was wider than the longitudinal section; the 3rd claval segment was contracted into a circular cone and a bent chaetica sensillum was located at its tip (Fig.
