All setae smooth, except Z4 and Z5, slightly serrated. Peritreme extending forwards to level of the bases of setae j1.

Ventral idiosoma. Sternal shield smooth, almost quadrate, with two pairs of setae (st1, st2) and two pairs of poroids (iv1, iv2). Distances st1–st1 55 (53–57), st2–st2 59 (56–63), st1–st2 36 (34–38). Setae st3 on the interscutal membrane, setae st4 and poroids iv3 tylochorous (on platelets). Genital shield smooth with indentation posteriorly to the bases of setae st5 at the bases of the genital sigilla (1–3 pairs). Posterior margin of the genital shield straight. The 4 th and 5 th pairs of genital sigilla clearly visible in most specimens. The 6 th pair of sigilla (sgpa) visible posteroparaxial to setae ZV1. Ventrianal shield slightly ornamented, sub-pentagonal, with four pairs of pre-anal setae, JV1, JV2, JV3 and ZV2 and a pair of solenostomes gv3 postero-paraxial to the setae JV2 at the same level of the bases of the setae JV3. Ventrianal shield 118 (111–123) long, 107 (101–112) wide at level of setae ZV2, 99 (95–103) at level of setae JV2, 93 (89–99) at level of setae JV3 and 79 (77–82) at level of para-anal setae. Setae JV5 smooth 56 (50–59) long.

Chelicera. Fixed digit 28 (26–31) long, with four teeth, pilus dentilis and the apical tooth. Movable digit, bidentate, 30 (29–31) long.

Legs. Genu II with seven setae, 2 2/0 2/0 1; Legs IV with macrosetae, SgeIV 24 (24–25), StiIV 24 (23–24) and StIV 57 (50–61).

Insemination apparatus. Major duct very short 5 (4–5) long. Accessus not visible. Atrium well differentiated at the basis of the calyx. Embolus and minor duct visible. Calyx tubular, elongate 28 (26–29) long and 6 (6–7) wide. Calyx membranous near to atrium and thicker afterwards.
