moth genitalia
Membranous portion of ductus bursae short, terminated by a broad, strongly chitinized collar, the lateral edges of which, on the ventral side, are produced into the well-chitinized proximal half of the bursa, forming a trough from the end of which a wide membranous ductus seminalis projects strongly to the right, curving somewhat downward and then bending back on itself and narrowing; a row of fine spines runs outward from the base along the caudal edge of this ductus. The balance of the bursa is globular and completely spined. Dorsally there is a patch of small spines immediately below the collar, more or less connected with the spined distal section which is similar to the ventral surface, leaving a small membranous shoulder on the left side, distad of the upper spine patch. (McDunnough, 1949)
