Diagnosis: D. pseudobrunneus  is similar to D. incertus Wang  2003 and D. latusincertus  sp. nov. in having similar epigynum and palp, but can be distinguished from D. latusincertus  sp. nov. by the small body size, the small, anteriorly extending conductor in the male (Figs 363-364, 367-369), and the slightly anteriorly extending spermathecae in the female; from D. incertus  by the more or less long patellar apophysis and the smooth posterior margin of embolus in the male, and anteriorly extending spermathecae in the female (Figs 361-362, 365, 375-406).

Description: Female. See Wang (2003). Photos of habitus, eyes, labium and epigynum are provided in this study (Figs 365-366, 373-374, 375-406).

Male (one male of CASENT9020464 measured). The male is here described for the first time. Medium sized Coelotinae  , total length 6.28 (Fig. 370). Dorsal shield of prosoma 3.28 long, 2.00 wide; opisthosoma 3.00 long, 2.15 wide. AME smallest, half the size of ALE; ALE largest, PLE slightly smaller than ALE, PME slightly smaller than PLE ( AME 0.06, ALE 0.14, PME 0.13, PLE 0.11); anterior eyes close together; AME separated from each other by half of their diameter, from ALE by of AME diameter; PME separated from each other by Ά of their diameter, from PLE by half of PME diameter (AME-AME 0.03, AME-ALE 0.02, PME-PME 0.04, PME-PLE 0.07, AME-PME 0.06) (Fig. 371). Labium length and width subequal ( L / W =1.0) (Fig. 372). Chelicerae with 3 promarginal and 2 retromarginal teeth. Palp with patellar apophysis moderately long, slender; RTA slightly less than or about half of tibial length, with moderately protruding distal end; lateral tibial apophysis large, distinctly separated from RTA; cymbial furrow small, less than half of cymbial length; conductor moderately long, with a slightly bifurcate apex, a small basal lamella, and a dorsal apophysis; median apophysis simple, not spoon-shaped; embolus short, filiform, prolateral in origin (Figs 363-364, 367-369).

Distribution: China (Yunnan: Lushui, Fugong, Gongshan) (Fig. 548).
