PME-PME 1.68 mm. ALE-ALE 2.85; ocular quadrangle AME-AME 0.60, PLE-PLE 2.98; clypeus 0.09 high. Mouthparts:chelicerae with stout setae medially and anteriorly; maxillae longer than broad, with tuft of conspicuous setae distally; labium distally rounded. Sternum:as long as broad, posteriorly indented. Legs:Leg I only slightly shorter than legs II, III and IV; leg formula 2341; legs I and II with tarsal and metatarsal scopulae; tarsi I-IV with strong claw tufts; claws without teeth; spination: leg I, Fm pr 2–1–0, d 1–1–1, rl 1–1–1; v 2–2–2; Mt v 2–2; leg II, Fm pr 1–0–0, d 1–1–1, rl 1–1–1; Ti v 2–2–2; Mt v 2–2; leg III, Fm pr 1–0–0, d 1–1–1, rl 1–1–1; Ti v 2–2–0; Mt v 2–2; leg IV, Fm pr 1–0–0, d 1–1–1, rl 0–0–1; Ti v 2–2–0; Mt v 2–2. Abdomen:without terminal setal tufts. Pedipalp:claw with 11 teeth. Epigyne:lateral lobes abut one another, ¾ the length of plate, extending from caudal margin to bottom of genital opening; opening small, slightly ovoid, epigynal pockets present; caudal margin sinuous, lobes extend posteromedially; internally, sperm ducts extend posteriorly, then separate laterally to oblong, cylindrical spermathecae, the fertilization ducts located laterally, directed anterolaterally, posterodorsal fold small, sinuous, does not completely cover spermathecae (Figs 127–128).Dimensions:The abdomen was damaged during collection, however, the specimen falls on the larger end of the spectrum for this genus (>10.00).
