    7 molts til maturity.

    Pectinal Tooth Counts (PTC): ♂ 31–36; ♀ 26–29. Pectines generally greater in length, with longer, more numerous teeth in males. Basal piece in males narrow allowing the basal pectinal teeth to touch or overlap. /\ Basal piece wider in females, with shorter, less numerous pectinal teeth; basal pectinal teeth do not touch or overlap. / \ Males are typically smaller, thinner and less robust than females.
