Epigastric scutum strongly sclerotized, surrounding pedicel, not protruding, small lateral sclerites absent, yellow. Postepigastric scutum strongly sclerotized, fused to epigastric scutum, with long posteriorly directed lateral apodemes, pes yellow, long, most of ventral abdomen covered. Lateral apodemes very long, distally inward-curved. Sperm pore elliptical, wider than long. Spinneret scutum present, incomplete ring, spinneret scutum an incomplete ring with fringe of needle-like setae. Anal scutum present. Spinneret scutum with fringe of needle-like setae. Dense patch of setae anterior to spinnerets absent. Colulus present, colulus present, sporting two setae. LEGS: yellow, without color pattern; femur IV not thickened, same size as femora I-III, patella plus tibia I shorter than carapace. Leg spines absent. Tarsi I to IV superior claws tooth not examined in detail. Trichobothria examined with Stereo microscope; tibia: each with three; metatarsus: each with one; each leg with four dorsal trichobothria: one on proximal tibia, two on distal tibia, one on distal metatarsus. GENITALIA: Epigastric region with sperm pore small, situated behind posterior spiracles; furrow without omega-shaped insertions, without setae. Palp not strongly sclerotized, right and left palps symmetrical, proximal segments white; embolus embolus tube-shaped, originating distally on palpal bulb. No conductor or other accessory structures; trochanter unmodified; femur two or more times as long as trochanter, attaching to patella basally, femur twice as long as patella; patella shorter than femur, not enlarged; tibia tibia and patella subequal; cymbium white, fused with bulb but with clearly defined seam between, extending beyond distal tip of bulb, with distal patch of setae; bulb white.
