            Male (PBI_OON 9043). Total length 1.78. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace carapace dark brown to almost black, shiny; microsculpture limited to lower part; non-marginal pars cephalica setae short setae on carapace. Eyes eyes small. PLE well-separated from PME and ALE. Sternum color: orange-yellow. Mouthparts: Chelicerae one small cheliceral tooth on promargin; setae sparse setae on anterior surface of paturon; on posterior surface of paturon a vertical row of five long, medially projecting hairs and a group of small spines located close to outer margin. Promargin flanked by double row of modified hairs running toward fang base. Inner row consisting of four hairs; hair shafts with two rows of small cuticular teeth. Outer row consisting of four flattened, peculiarly shaped hairs. A long-stalked, medially directed plumose hair originating between double row and fang base. Proximal to double row a modified hair flanked by a spiniform hair. Proximal to these a single modified hair. Inner surface of each chelicera giving rise to long, bent hair. Fang base flanked posteriorly by three hairs, innermost one plumose; outermost hair long and curved inward.. Labium labium much wider than long. Endites endites large, dark red to black, strongly modified. Two ventrally projecting processes originating near inner margin of each endite; anterior one largest, its distal surface striking, appearing grooved; posterior one anteroposteriorly flattened, contacting posterior surface of grooved process, distally giving rise to three thick, curved setae directed medially or posteromedially. Inner margin of each endite forming hollow hook pointing backward. Hooks slender and protruding above grooved process. ABDOMEN: Book lung covers color: dark orange to red. Pedicel pedicel tube without small, dorsolateral triangular extensions. Dorsal scutum dS rather shiny; a few rather short, shallow, longitudinal grooves near margin of scutum. Color: brown with a conspicuous transverse white band. Postepigastric scutum ventral scutum orange-yellow, distinctly elevated at level of sperm pore and spiracles. Sperm pore elliptical, with row of setae anterior to it. A rather short lateral apodeme visible through integument on either side of sperm pore. Spinneret scutum spinneret scutum an incomplete ring with fringe of needle-like setae. Anal scutum present. Colulus small, sclerotized colulus sporting two hairs. Spinnerets: ALS: aLS two-segmented, with one major ampullate gland spigot and three piriform gland spigots, the anterior one clearly separated from the two posterior ones; PMS: pMS single-segmented, digitiform, with only one spigot; PLS: pLS two-segmented, with three spigots. LEGS: coxae leg formula 4123. Legs white with parts of some segments dark brown, giving legs banded appearance. Leg spines . Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth examined in detail. Trichobothria examined with SEM; each leg with four dorsal trichobothria: one on proximal tibia, two on distal tibia, one on distal metatarsus. Articulating membrane ridged. No variation in bothrium structure among legs or among positions on a given leg.. Tarsal organ tarsal organ similar on all legs, exposed. GENITALIA: Palp embolus bulbus with distal embolus and conductor. Embolus tubular but tip flattened, opening to outside via broad slit. Tip often bent at almost 90° angle. A small projection present near embolar tip. Conductor slender, usually broader at base; situated approximately prolaterally of embolus; tibia tibia as long as patella; cymbium tarsal organ tarsal organ situated medially on cymbium; structure as on legs.
