18. Mesoscutal midlobe (a1) with 1 pair of setae (the posterior pair) and scrobal grooves (b1) long and narrow, extending almost parallel and very close together to end separately in the straight transverse frontal groove near the median ocellus (facial collapse may make the transverse groove appear V-shaped), and clypeus (b1) set off by distinct sutures.
