            Female (PBI_OON00012296). Total length 1.60. As in male except as noted. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace reticulation on carapace surface sides partly interrupted by smooth areas; carapace margin with sluice, reaching level of coxa I; carapace colour: 136 Raw Sienna (Smithe, 1975: Naturalist's Color Guide, AMNH); non-marginal pars cephalica setae setae arranged in a long u-shaped row reaching posterior edge of pars cephalica; each setae originating from the middle of a pitlike structure with partly swollen edges, especially pronounced at posterior edge of pars cephalica, where hair bases may appear denticle-like; marginal setae denticles at carapace margin represent modified hair bases, setae originating from anterior face of denticles, pointing anteriorly. Clypeus setae a pair of long, needle-like setae on each half of the clypeus, with the inner ones longer than the outer ones. Eyes posterior eye row recurved from above; PME touching for less than half their length. Sternum radial furrows between coxae I-II, II-III and III-IV only very weakly developed, rather appearing as indentions of sternum margin; sternum microsculptures lobed; sternum surface setae originating from middle of microsculptures; posterior edge of sternum protruding as single extension, covered with small blunt denticles. Mouthparts: Chelicerae distal end of anterior face of paturon without toothlike projection (see male); setae anterior face of cheliceraes with few, rather evenly scattered setae. Labium labium ventral surface with typical setae pattern: two rather distal setae i.e. one on each side of incision and a more or less transverse line of three more proximal setae posterior to incision. Endites serrula present in single row, outer margin subdistally with a pair of long setae, distally bent inwards. Female palp claws absent; spines absent; tarsus unmodified, patella without prolateral row of ridges. ABDOMEN: Book lung covers elongated, about 4x longer than wide, rather dumbbell- or pear-shaped. Pedicel dorsal part of epigastric scutum with subterminal ridge (=widely oval scutal ridge), scuto-pedicel region with slightly modified hair bases (appearing as small denticles). Dorsal scutum surface smooth, but bases of setae appearing pitlike, giving a punctate impression. Epigastric scutum without lateral joints, posterolaterally with longitudinal row of ridges. Postepigastric scutum not fused to epigastric scutum, with short posteriorly directed lateral apodemes, lateral apodemes rather short looking at stereomicroscope level, but in fact rather long (though posterior part rather weakly sclerotized). LEGS: femora in dorsal view: Femur IV recurved, Femora I-II procurved, Femur III slightly procurved, tibiae special hairs on ventral apex of tibia III & IV thin, plumose, distally flattened, with fringed lateral margins and spatulate tips, metatarsi special hairs on ventral apex of metatarsi III & IV short, dagger-like, with finely serrated ridges on surface and coarsely serrated lateral margins; dorsal apex of metatarsi I–IV with a short, shieldlike appendage. Leg spines absent. Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth not examined in detail. Trichobothria examined with Compound microscope. GENITALIA: Dorsal view: thoma et al. 2014: "Dorsal view (Figs. 25G–H): receptaculum (re) triangular shaped with rounded posterior edge, laterally framed by long rectangular sclerites (apodemes) (lap); apodemes distally rather thin and thus looking rather short in ventral view at stereomicroscope level; globular appendix (gap) lying dorsally of receptaculum about half as long as receptaculum; lateral and median part of receptaculum dorsally covered with papillae (pap); a transverse sclerite (ts) lies anteriorly to the receptaculum and bears medially a nail-like structure (na).".
