Base furrow teeth shape-size retromarginalvery small. Claw lengthshort. Eyes: Number eye rowsthree. AERdorsal edge recurve. PERequidistant between anterior and posterior margin of carapace. PER - AER widthPER < AER. AMEseparated of each other. touch each other. ALEseparated from AME. PMEsmall, < 1/3 as ALE. equidistant between ALE & PLE. PLEPLE = ALE. Labium: Lengthlonger than wide. Sternum: Length : width ratio< 2 : 1. Anterior borderwider than Labium. Shapeshield-shaped. Palp: GnathocoxaSerrula present. Corner absent. Legs: Leg formula4-3-2-1. Tarsal ClawsI: present. II: present. III: present. IV: present. Peculiaritieswithout peculiarities. with fringe hairs on tibiae and metatarsi of leg III (and legs I-II; but there maybe less distinct). Colourationdark red-brown or brown with several lighter annulations, mainly at proximal articles and tarsi, but also at distal sections of tibiae and/or metatarsi. dark red-brown or brown with few lighter annulations, mainly at proximal articles and tarsi. Opisthosoma: Colourationthree bands; AM broadest; C second broadest (but only slightly narrower than AM), without dark chevron; PM narrowest. Epigyne: Field - presencepresent. Field - widthclearly broader than long. Window - presencepresent. Window - shapeoval. without transversal division. anterior 1/3 of epigynal window narrower than posterior 1/3. Windows - septum - statecontinuous. medium-sized (> 1/6, < 1/3 the width of epigynal window). separating more than only the posterior sections of epigynal windows. at anteriormost section clearly diverging. Window - posterior margin - distance to EpGF short. Window - posterior margin - positionreaching (or almost reaching or minimally extending) the epigastric furrow. Window - lateral margin - conditioncontinuous. Window - anterior margin - conditionmargins of both epigynal windows anterio-medially not connected. Window - posterior half - shaperegularly rounded. Copulatory opening - locationlocated in anterior half of epigyne. Vulva: blind sac - lengthblind sac absent. fertilization duct - arising pointcentro-anteriorly. fertilization duct - widthinitial section of fertilisation duct medium-sized (not narrower or at most 3/4 as narrow as connective duct). primary spermatheca - shaperound. diagonal oval. primary spermatheca - size rel.medium-sized (diameter of primary spermatheca more than 1/2 the length of epigynal window, but less than 2/3). large (diameter of primary spermatheca more than 2/3 the length of epigynal window, but less than 3/4). primary spermatheca - position(main parts) posterior of secondary spermatheca (in dorsal view without gap between the two; may touching each other). secondary spermatheca - presencepresent. secondary spermatheca - shape(approximately) round. secondary spermatheca - visibilityvisible through cuticle of the epigyne. secondary spermatheca - size rel. small (ratio "diameter primary spermatheca / diameter secondary spermatheca" < 2.5 but > 1.5). secondary spermatheca - spanspan over both secondary spermathecae longer than span over both primary spermathecae. secondary spermatheca - orientationbeing round and thus orientation not recognisable; with spermathecal head orientated posteriorly). connective duct - initial positioncentro-anteriorly. connective duct - widthnarrow (width of secondary spermatheca / width of connective duct < 4, but > 3). connective duct - final positionanterio-medially. connective duct - shapeslightly curved and strongly diagonally converging. connective duct - length rel.short. head of spermatheca - shapeflat. round (or at least spherical) (length > or equal 1 x width, but < 1.25x). head of spermatheca - orientationstraight posterior.
