Remarks. Additional material from this species was not located. However, adult female holotype can be easily separate from other Nops  species by the remarkable dorsal abdominal pattern.

Diagnosis. Both sexes can easily be separated from members of all the other South American species by having a dorsal abdominal pattern unique as in figure 58 A‒B, D.
