ABDOMEN: ovoid, without long posterior extension, rounded posteriorly, inter-scutal membrane rows of small sclerotized platelets absent posteriorly; dorsum soft portions pale white, without color pattern. Book lung covers large, ovoid, without setae, anterolateral edge unmodified. Posterior spiracles connected by groove. Pedicel tube short, unmodified, scuto-pedicel region unmodified, scutum not extending far dorsal of pedicel, plumose hairs absent, matted setae on anterior ventral abdomen in pedicel area absent, cuticular outgrowths near pedicel absent. Dorsal scutum absent. Epigastric scutum weakly sclerotized, not surrounding pedicel, not protruding, small lateral sclerites absent, without lateral joints. Postepigastric scutum weakly sclerotized, pale orange, short, only around epigastric furrow, not fused to epigastric scutum, anterior margin unmodified, without posteriorly directed lateral apodemes. Spinneret scutum absent. Dorsum setae present, dark, needle-like. Epigastric area setae uniform, dark, needle-like. Postepigastric area setae present, dark, needle-like. Dense patch of setae anterior to spinnerets absent. Colulus represented only by setae. LEGS: pale orange, without color pattern; femur IV not thickened, same size as femora I-III, patella plus tibia I near as long as carapace, tibia I unmodified. Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): (leg I: femora: pv 0-0-1-1-0; tibiae: v2-2-2-2-2-0; metatarsi: v2-2-2, leg II: femora: d1-0, pv 0-0-1-1-0; tibiae: v2-2-2-2-2-0; metatarsi: v2-2-2, leg III: femora: d1-1; tibiae: p1-1; metatarsi: p1-1, r1, v1-1ap, leg IV: femora: d1-0-1; tibiae: p1-0-1, r1-1; metatarsi: p1-0-1, r1, v2ap. ).
