Female palp claws absent; spines absent; tarsus unmodified. ABDOMEN: Book lung covers not visible. Pedicel with meshed texture. Spinnerets: ALS: with one major ampullate gland spigot emerging from cylindrical tubercle and three piriform gland spigots emerging from shallow tubercle; PMS: with minor ampullate gland spigot and three aciniform gland spigots; PLS: with six aciniform gland spigots. LEGS: Leg spines absent. Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth not examined in detail. Trichobothria examined with SEM. Tarsal organ pear shaped, margin raised above surroundings, with 4 sensilla on leg I and II, with 3 sensilla on leg III and IV. GENITALIA: Shape: anterior epigastric margin strongly sclerotized, preceded by T shaped structure visible in transparency (AS), with larger, square part (ARE)in between, the latter provided at base with fine transverse bar (T) ending in two faint procurved lobes (FA) extending as far as lateral protrusions(Pr)of frontal T shape (AS). Dorsal view: anterior sclerite (AS) short, T shaped, with lateral protrusions (Pr) well developed and provided with ramified ridges on anterior side and dorsally near extremities; As connected with anterior receptaculum (ARe) antero-ventrally; ARe about half as wide as AS including Pr, square, provided dorsally and apically with rows of gland ducts (GD) confined in frontal groove; ARe adjacent to transverse bar (T) ending laterally in well developed bilobed flattened apodeme (FA), its dorsal extremity anchoring to the posterior receptaculum (PRe); PRe well developped, egg shaped, emerging from base of ARe. Uterus exterus apparently (UE) not visible.
