Not illustrated. 1889 Excerpt: ...spotted with red; of the females one has the hind body entirely black while the other has the apical segment spotted. The female witli the hind body entirely black lias the prothorax also entirely black, in the other three examples before me at least the hinder part of the lateral margin of the prothorax is red. W.
