            Male (PBI_OON_4735). CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace red-brown, pars cephalica strongly elevated in lateral view, anteriorly narrowed to between 0.5 and 0.75 times its maximum width, with rounded posterolateral corners, posterolateral edge without pits, anterolateral corners with strongly sclerotized, triangular extension, posterolateral surface without spikes, surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica smooth, thorax without depressions, carapace anteriorly narrowed to 0.5 times its maximum width. Lateral surfaces with microsculpture on lower part, without radiating rows of pits; lateral margin straight, rebordered; non-marginal pars cephalica setae present. Clypeus sinuous in front view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more, median projection absent, clypeus very high; setae present. Eyes two, two small, oval eyes, approximately one diameter apart., ALE oval. Sternum as long as wide, fused to carapace, median concavity absent, with radial furrows between coxae I-II, II-III, III-IV, surface finely reticulate, without pits, microsculpture medially and in furrows, sickle-shaped structures absent, posterior margin not extending posteriorly of coxae IV, anterior corner with strongly sclerotized triangle in male, distance between coxae approximately equal, extensions of pre-coxal triangles present, without posterior hump, color: pale yellow. Pleural flaps present, small; setae abundant, without hair tufts. Mouthparts: Chelicerae anterior face unmodified, orange. One small cheliceral tooth on promargin; promargin with one tooth; fangs without tooth-like projections, shape normal, without prominent basal process, tip unmodified; setae a short, apically pointed seta arising from inner surface of each chelicera. Promargin flanked by double row of setae (inner and outer row); each row with about five setae; setae of inner row with small cuticular teeth on shaft; outer row consisting of smooth setae. Between double row and fang base a long plumose hair. Anterior face of paturon with sparse setae. Posterior surface of paturon with five medially directed setae and three shorter spines.; paturon promargin with row of flattened setae. Labium much more heavily sclerotized than sternum, wider than long; with setae. Endites much more heavily sclerotized than sternum, endites with zyngoonoid-type modifications; median projection short, directed anteriorly, with a curved anterior extension; setae s1-3 relatively short; median surface with two groups of setae (anterior and posterior group). ABDOMEN: ovoid, without long posterior extension, rounded posteriorly, inter-scutal membrane rows of small sclerotized platelets absent posteriorly.

Dorsal scutum strongly sclerotized, yellow-brown, without color pattern, covering full length of abdomen, no soft tissue visible from above, not fused to epigastric scutum, middle surface reticulate, sides reticulate, anterior half without projecting denticles, ds yellow-brown, covering entire dorsum. Epigastric scutum strongly sclerotized, surrounding pedicel, small lateral sclerites absent, color: yellow. Postepigastric scutum strongly sclerotized, yellow, covering nearly full length of abdominal length, fused to epigastric scutum, with long posteriorly directed lateral apodemes, ventral scutum with two apophyses, anterior apophysis crest-shaped, triangular, situated near anterior margin of pedicel tube, posterior apophysis long, horn-shaped, bearing sperm pore. Sperm pore small, elliptical, wider than long, situated near tip of posterior apophysis. A pair of additional orifices mesad of posterior spiracles. Spinneret scutum present, incomplete ring, spinneret scutum present, incomplete ring, with fringe of setae. Spinneret scutum with fringe of needle-like setae. Interscutal membrane with setae. Colulus present, colulus present, sporting two setae. Spinnerets: ALS: aLS two-segmented, with one major ampullate gland spigot and two piriform gland spigots; PMS: pMS single-segmented, digitiform, with two spigots; PLS: pLS two-segmented, with three spigots. LEGS: yellow, without color pattern; femur IV not thickened, same size as femora I-III, patella plus tibia I shorter than carapace, tibia I unmodified, tibia IV specialized hairs on ventral apex present, coxae coxae IV with a hand-shaped apophysis that bears four (holotype) or five (other specimen) peg setae, tibiae tibia III and IV with a group of specialized setae on ventral apex. Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): patellae: I p0-1-0; tibiae: I v2-2-2; II v0-1r-0; metatarsi: I v0-2-0; (leg I: patellae with prolateral spine situated at about half of segment length; tibiae with three pairs of ventral spines situated near base, at about one-third, and about two-thirds of segment length; metatarsi with one pair of ventral spines at about one-third of segment length, leg II: tibiae with ventral spine at about one-third of segment length. ). Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth examined in detail. Tarsi I to IV without inferior claw. Trichobothria examined with SEM; tibia: each with three; metatarsus: each with one; aperture internal texture grate-like, each leg with four dorsal trichobothria: one on proximal tibia, two on distal tibia, one on distal metatarsus. Articulating membrane ridged.. Tarsal organ tarsal organ exposed; the receptors could not be studied because they were obscured by debris. GENITALIA: Epigastric region with sperm pore small, situated behind posterior spiracles, with strongly protruding extension. Palp not strongly sclerotized, right and left palps symmetrical; embolus embolus tube-like, less than half as long as bulb, with distally a slit-like opening; trochanter unmodified, trochanter without ventral projection; femur two or more times as long as trochanter, without posteriorly rounded lateral dilation, attaching to patella basally; patella shorter than femur, not enlarged, without prolateral row of ridges; tibia tibia with three dorsal trichobothria, trichobothria with 3 trichobothria; cymbium fused with bulb but with clearly defined seam between, extending beyond distal tip of bulb, fused with bulb but seam still visible distally; extending slightly beyond distal tip of bulb; bulb shorter than cymbium, elongated, distal part conductor situated prolaterally of embolus, slightly longer than embolus, with dorsally a conspicuous rod-like projection.
