Diagnosis. Males can be easily separated from those of S. deltshevi by the presence of a dorsal bump on the medial tibial apophysis ( Fig. 23 View Figures 19-23 , arrowed). From S. kindamba , they can be distinguished by the longer ventral and shorter medial tibial apophysis ( Fig. 19 View Figures 19-23 , arrows 1 and 2), also by the shape of the retrolateral bump of the tegulum, especially on its dorsal part ( Fig. 21 View Figures 19-23 , arrow). The females differ from those of S. kindamba in having shorter insemination ducts ( Fig. 26 View Figures 24-29 ).

Chelicerae brown or dark brown. Chelicerae with 5 promarginal teeth ( Fig. 28 View Figures 24-29 ). Abdomen yellow-grey. Ventral part grey-brown. Dorsum brown covered with dense white hairs, with three orange stripes same position with male (holotype in poor condition, without orange hairs on stripes because of this). Posterior part with five pairs of orange points located between medial and lateral stripes. Book lungs covers yellow-grey. Spinnerets brownish yellow.

Structure of epigyne and spermathecae as in Figs 24-26, 29 View Figures 24-29 .
