Diagnosis Metaterga 2–8 with 2+2 tubercles/cones/spines in anterior row and 2+2 tubercles/cones/spines in posterior row; metaterga 9–19 with 3+3 tubercles/cones/spines in posterior row. Similar in these respects to D. breviverpa, D. purpurosea, D. takensis, and D. taurina. Differs from those by having: metaterga 9–19 with two rows of 3(2)+3(2) tubercles/cones/spines in anterior row; lamina lateralis (ll) round and compact; tip of process (plm) of lamina medialis terminating in a sharp spine; distal lobe (dlm) of lamina medialis long; broad lobe (blm) dorsally expanded [details]

Remark The species is aposematic in its vivid pink body. This animal was noticeable by the contrast of its bright colour to green leaves or brown rocks, it thus was easy to see and collect after rain [details]
