            Female (PBI_OON 14766). Total length 2.17. As in male except as noted. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace broadly oval in dorsal view, cuticle surface with iridiscence. Clypeus the stout clypeal setae are not so erected as in the male. Eyes on a dark area. Labium ; with 3-5 setae on anterior margin. Female palp claws absent; spines absent; tarsus unmodified, patella without prolateral row of ridges. ABDOMEN: Book lung covers booklung covers inconspicuous. Epigastric scutum without lateral joints. Spinneret scutum present, incomplete ring. LEGS: Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): femora: IV d1-1-1; (leg I: femur: pv0-0-1-1-0 tibia: v2-2-2-2-2-0 metatarsus: v2-2-2-2, leg II: femur: pv0-0-1-1-0 tibia: v2-2-2-2-2-0 metatarsus: v2-2-2-2, leg III: femur: d1-1 tibia: vap1 metatarsus: vap2, leg IV: tibia: d1-0-1, p1-1, r1-1, v0-1-1 metatarsus: d1, vap2. ). Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth not examined in detail. Trichobothria not examined. GENITALIA: Shape: tThe genital opening connects to the uterus externus, from which two elements emerge: one anterior receptaculum and a posterior plate, with an anterior concavity. The long anterior receptacle have accesory glands and a set of muscles attached: one anteroventrally (presumably to the ventral cuticle) and one pair to the lateral projections of a sclerotised posterior plate. The anterior part of the posterior plate have an U-shaped margin that corresponds with the shape of the anterior ridge of the opening of the uterus externus, which forms a kind of transverse open u-shaped locking mechanism. Ventral view: dark anterior receptaculum, the wide u-shaped sclerotization posterior to the epigastric furrow is visible by transparence. Dorsal view: anterior receptacle cylindrical, not widened at the tip, with accesory glands along most of its length. Posterior plate transverse, oval, not covering totally the anterior receptaculum in dorsal view.
