Diagnosis: This species is close to D. pseudocapitulatus Wang  , 2003 in having similar spermathecae, an anteriorly extending conductor, and in lacking epigynal teeth. The different positions of the atrial ridges (Fig. 44) can distinguish the females. In this species, the atrial ridges extend more or less medially, ending posteriorly anterior of epigastric furrow, forming a triangular median area (Figs 44-45), while the atrial ridges in D. pseudocapitulatus  extend relatively laterally, ending posteriorly close to the epigastric furrow, forming a rectangular median area (Figs 407-408). The male can be recognized by the presence of a small patellar apophysis, the distinctly curved distal conductor, and the simple median apophysis (Figs 46-47).

Description: Female. See Wang (2003). Photos of habitus, eyes, labium and epigynum are provided in this study (Figs 44-45, 48, 50-53, 57-58).

Male (male of CASENT9020615 measured). Male is described for the first time. Large sized coelotine, total length 11.41 (Fig. 59). Dorsal shield of prosoma 5.70 long, 4.05 wide; opisthosoma 5.71 long, 3.45 wide. AME smallest, about 3/4 of ALE size; lateral eyes largest, PME slightly smaller than lateral eyes ( AME 0.16, ALE 0.21, PME 0.18, PLE 0.21); AME separated from each other by half of their diameter, from ALE by less than half of AME diameter; PME separated from each other by slightly less than their diameter, from PLE by about PME diameter; AME and PME separated by slightly less than AME diameter (AME-AME 0.08, AME-ALE 0.06, PME-PME 0.14, PME-PLE 0.19, AME-PME 0.14) (Fig. 60). Chelicerae with 3 promarginal and 2 retromarginal teeth. Labium with length and width subequal ( L / W =1.00) (Fig. 61). Palp with a tiny patellar apophysis; RTA less than half of tibial lenth, with a slightly protruding distal end; lateral tibial apophysis arising distally close to RTA; cymbial furrow less than half of cymbial length; conductor short, slightly extending anteriorly, with a slightly curved apex, a small basal lamella, and a dorsal apophysis; median apophysis simple, not spoon-shaped; embolus short, filiform, prolateral in origin (Figs 46-47, 54-56). Distribution: China (Yunnan: Tengchong, Lushui, Fugong, Gongshan) (Fig. 534).
