Diagnosis. Males ( Figs 53–54 View FIGURE 53 View FIGURE 54 ) can be easily recognized by the short, triangular RTA, the ventrally directed embolus, and the basally expanded tegulum. Females ( Fig. 52 View FIGURE 52 ) are similar to M. lineolata comb. nov. by having large, oval S2 flanked by the smaller, CDR and S1 ( Platnick & Ewing 1995: fig. 101), and a small hood, but can be distinguished by the larger and more advanced hood ( Fig. 52h View FIGURE 52 ).

Description. Male and female described by Platnick & Ewing (1995).

Natural history and habitat. Several specimens were collected in pitfalls traps.
