Diagnosis. Males resemble similar congener Nops jaragua  n. sp. ( Fig. 26B‒C View Figure ) by having short and curved embolus, but can be distinguished by having the embolus tip shorter and beveled with sclerotized margin ( Fig. 24B‒C View Figure ). Females can be distinguished by receptaculum with wide invagination and uterus externus with narrow base ( Fig. 24F View Figure ).

Description. Male and female described by Sánchez‒Ruiz et al. (2015).
