Postepigastric scutum not fused to epigastric scutum, with short posteriorly directed lateral apodemes. LEGS: tibia IV specialized hairs on ventral apex present, 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. 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. 4FG): receptaculum (re) large, oval, containing an oval sac-like structure (sa), lateral and median part dorsally covered with papillae (pap), laterally framed by elongated, posteriorly pointed sclerites (apodemes, lap); globular appendix (gap) lying dorsally of receptaculum about 1/5 as long as receptaculum; a transverse sclerite (tsc) lies anteriorly to the receptaculum and bears medially a nail-like structure (na).".
