Dorsum. Dorsal shield 304, 330 long, 156, 176 wide at level of s4, 172, 187 wide at level of S2 and 177, 179 at level of setae S4; slightly reticulated all-over, with four pairs of solenostomes (gd2, gd6, gd8, gd9), 17 pairs of dorsal setae and two pairs of sub-lateral setae are present: j 1 22, 23; j 3 27, 31; j4 17; j 5 15, 18; j6 19; J5 3, 5; z2 17; z 3 23, 24; z 4 23, 25; z5 18; Z4 40, 41; Z5 61, 65; s 4 28, 29; s 6 31, 33; S2 35, 36; S4 36, 37; r 3 23, 24; R 1 22, 24. All setae smooth, except Z4 and Z5, serrated. Peritreme extending forwards the level between the setae j3–z2.

Ventral idiosoma. Sternal shield weakly sclerotised, smooth with two pairs of setae (st1, st2) and poroids (iv1, iv2). Distances st1–st1 48, 49, st2–st2 54, 58, st1–st2 33, 37. Posterior margin of the sternal shield indistinct. Setae st3 and st4 and poroids iv3 tylochorous. Genital shield smooth with an evident V-shaped genital sigilla. The 4 th and 5 th pairs of genital sigilla filiform between the bases of the setae ZV1. The 6 th pair of sigilla (sgpa) small, elongated, postero-paraxially to the setae ZV1. Ventrianal shield subtriangular slightly striated with four pairs of pre-anal setae, JV1, JV2, JV3 and ZV2. Length of the ventrianal shield 108, 109, width at level of setae ZV2 93, 113, at level of setae JV2 90, 105, at level of setae JV3 83, 99 and at level of para-anal setae 76, 78. Pre-anal sigilla clearly visible paraxially to setae JV3; solenostome gv3 absent. Setae JV5 53, 54 long.

Chelicera. Fixed digit 27, 29 long, with three subapical teeth and pilus dentilis; the movable digit 27, 28 long with one tooth.

Legs. Genu II with six setae, 1 2/0 2/0 1; Legs IV with three macrosetae: SgeIV 23–24 (pointed), StiIV 23–26 (pointed), StIV 49–52 (slightly knobbed).

Insemination apparatus. Major duct broad and short. Atrium slightly bulbous, well differentiated (in accordance with Tixier et al., 2016), embolus and minor duct visible. A small neck (sometimes indiscernible) is present between the atrium and the calyx. The shape of the calyx is campanulate, thin near to the neck and the atrium, thickwalled afterwards, 12 long and 5 in width.
