Diagnosis. Males of this species can be distinguished from N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n. by the long patellar apophysis, subequal to the length of patella, while it is obvious short in N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n.; and cymbial furrow short, less than ½ of the length of cymbium, while it is about ⅓ in N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n. ( Figs 1C View Figure , 5C View Figure ), and median apophysis absent ( Figs 1B–C View Figure , 5B–C View Figure ). Females of the species can be distinguished from N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n. by the spermathecal heads whose width equal to the length while in N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n., the width of spermathecal heads is longer than the length ( Figs 2B View Figure , 6B View Figure ); the posterior epigynal sclerite semicircular and uncovered while in N. brevipatellatus Z. Zhao & S. Li  sp. n., the posterior epigynal sclerite covered by the extended posterior edge of atrium ( Figs 2A View Figure , 6A View Figure ).
