Measurements of one specimen from Cajanuma NP

Prodorsum: length 404, height 136; notogaster: length 828, height 535, c 1 53.1, c 1 / c 1 – d 150.26, h 1 63.2, ps 1 55.7.

Remark

Morphological characters of prodorsum and genitoaggenital plates are similar to those of the type species. Morphological differences concern the considerably longer notogastral and anal setae, greater number (24 pairs) of notogastral setae (21 pairs in holotype) and different arrangement of ps row setae.
