Palp: GnathocoxaSerrula present. Corner present. Tibia - retrolateral tibial apophysis - characteristicsretrolateral process - RTA. dorsal serration distinct. base of RTA distinctly wider than distal section (consider also retrolateral view). RTA in ventral view medium-sized in width (between 3x longer than broad and 4.5x). RTA in ventral view stout (less than 3x longer than broad). RTA long. RTA in retrolateral view with slight ventral orientation (less than 10° angle). RTA in retrolateral view without bent (or just indistinct bent). Tibia - ventral bump - sizeabsent or at least not recognisable as such. very short and indistinct. Tibia - ventral bump - characteristicspresent. absent. inconspicuous. Cymbium: General shapeelongated. Scopula lengthmoderate or short (covering less than distal 1/2 of dorsal cymbium). Presence of prominent ridges or extensions ventrally present. Tegulum: Widthtegulum narrower than cymbium. tegulum as broad as cymbium. General shapeelongated. Shape of proximal halfproximal tegulum lobe present. Proximal lobe - positiondistinctly shifted centrally. Proximal lobe - size rel.relatively narrow. Proximal lobe - shaperegularly rounded. Special structureswithout special structures. Sperm duct - locationoccupying more than retrolateral 3/4 of tegulum. Sperm duct - shapedouble-stacked S-shaped, (very depressed). Median hematodocha - presencepresent. Terminal hematodocha - presencepresent. Embolus: Base positioncentro-distally (or even retrolatero-distally). Base circle sizelarge (width between 2/3 and 3/4 the width of tegulum).

Direction of distalmost sectionprolatero-distally (with between 11° and 50° angle from longitudinal axis of cymbium). width relation - at arising point - subdistallyfrom 4.1x to 7.5x broader. width relation - subdistally - centrallyfrom > 1/2 to < 3/4 the width of central section. General structurewithout or with 1-3 (at most) longitudinal ridges. very long, more than 1.5x the width of tegulum. with more than 1 1/2 windings . without distinct embolic lamella over entire embolus length. without apophysis. in ventral view subdistally distinctly narrower than proximally. filiform (very narrow: centrally with less than 1/4 the width of sperm duct). Special structuredistally pointed. without apohysis (apophyses). Legs: Leg formula4-3-1-2. 4-3-2-1. Tarsal ClawsI: present. II: present. III: present. IV: present. Peculiaritieswith fringe hairs on tibiae and metatarsi of leg III (and legs I-II; but there maybe less distinct).
