Comments: Members of this species group cannot be distinguished by color, pattern, or structural features, with males told apart solely by song (Walker et al., 2003). Males lack the black spots on the pronotal carinae that characterize the Uhleri Group and the dark lines that border these carinae in some members of the Oblongifolia Group.
Structural Features: The species in this group have a shallow humeral sinus of the lateral lobe of pronotum and each metasternal lobe is wider than long (Walker, 2006).
