Chelicerae with a large tooth and several denticles at promargin, several small denticles at retromargin. Labium semilunar, margin curved distally. Sternum posterior corner sharp. Legs brown-yellow, long and thin. Leg I longer than body length. Leg measurements: I 6.81 (2.13, 2.32, 1.45, 0.91); II 6.04 (1.90, 2.10, 1.23, 0.81); III 4.35 (1.35, 1.45, 0.94, 0.61); IV 5.15 (1.67, 1.61, 1.12, 0.75). Leg formula: I-II-IV-III. Opisthosoma nearly white, without pigmentation pattern, covered sparse gray setae.

Male. Total length 1.48. Prosoma 0.73 long, 0.55 wide. Opisthosoma 0.35 long, 0.55 wide, 0.71 high. Pedipalp length: 0.81 (0.16, 0.10, 0.15, 0.40).
