Soft skin anterior to dorsal shield with two groups of three transverse, contiguous platelets. Setae j 1 29 [29], j 3 40 [31], j 4 24 [18], j 5 23 [21], j 6 25 [23], J 2 28 [25], J 5 13 [10], z 2 23 [23], z 3 34 [30], z 4 33 [25], z 5 20 [18], Z 4 57 [51], Z 5 65 [62], s 4 37 [29], s 6 38 [34], S 2 41 [39], S 4 45 [34], S 5 25 [25], r 3 32 [26], R 1 31 [25]. Dorsal setae smooth. Peritreme ( Fig. 75View FIGURES 71 – 76) extending forward to level between j 1 and j 3.

Venter ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 71 – 76). Sternal shield smooth, with two pairs of setae and one pair of lyrifissures; second pair of sternal lyrifissures (iv 2) apparently on unsclerotised cuticle adjacent to posterior margin of sternal shield; st 3 on unsclerotised cuticle and st 4 on metasternal platelets; region anterior to first pair of sternal setae (st 1) lightly striate. Distances between st 1 – st 1 62 [62], st 2 –st 2 71 [59], st 3 –st 3 83 [70], st 4 –st 4 81 [81]. Genital shield smooth, with lateral extensions; distance between st 5 –st 5 73 [73]. Ventrianal shield subpentagonal, smooth; 119 [120] long, 109 [94] wide at ZV 2 level and 100 [88] wide at level of anus; with four pairs of pre-anal setae and no pores. Seta JV 5 65 [55]. Ventral setae smooth. Two pairs of metapodal plates.

Spermatheca ( Fig. 74View FIGURES 71 – 76). Calyx of spermatheca cup-shaped, 17 [16] long; atrium distinct, c-shaped.

Gnathosoma. Corniculi parallel to each other; basal width of corniculus 6, distance between bases of corniculi 5. Movable cheliceral digit 33 [27] long, with three teeth ( Fig. 73View FIGURES 71 – 76); fixed digit 31 [29] long, with three teeth; dorsal and lateral lyrifissures distinct.

Legs. Macrosetae sharp-tipped: Sge IV 33 [29], Sti IV 35 [24], St IV 64 [52] ( Fig. 76View FIGURES 71 – 76); macroseta of telotarsus IV 42 [36]; chaetotaxy of genu II 2, 2/ 0, 2 / 0, 1; genu III 1, 2/ 1, 2 / 0, 1.

Specimens examined. Holotype female from grapevine leaves, at New Valley governorate, September 1965 (coll. E.A. El-Badry); one adult female from same substrate, at Omar Makram village, Moderit el Tahrir, Beheira governorate, unknown collecting date (coll. E.A. El-Badry).

Previous records from Egypt. Asyut and Beheira governorates ( Zaher, 1986); New Valley governorate (El- Badry, 1968 b; Zaher, 1986).

Remarks. This species was originally described from the holotype female collected in New Valley governorate, Egypt. The original description was reasonably detailed, with illustrations and setal measurements. According to the original description of the species and according to El-Badry (1970), the sternal shield of this species bears three pairs of setae, although in both publications the margins of the shield was shown in broken lines, suggesting they are not clearly defined. Zaher (1986) also reported the sternal shield has three pairs of setae.
