Diagnosis: The female of this species is similar to D. dubius Wang  2003 by lacking epigynal teeth and having broad spermathecae, but can be distinguished by the presence of distinct anteriorly diverging, posteriorly converging atrial ridges and the broad spermathecae (Figs 332, 337-351). The male can be easily recognized by the broad, bifurcate patellar apophysis, the simple median apophysis, and the short, broad, prolaterally originating embolus (Figs 334-336).

Description: See Wang (2003). Photos of habitus, eyes, labium and genitalia are provided in this study.

Distribution: China (Yunnan: Lushui, Fugong, Gongshan) (Fig. 545).
