Palp: tibia with single small apophysis curved inwards and directed forward, embolus long, straight and solidly built (Mello- Leitao 1936, Fig. 10View FIGURES 4 – 10). Tegulum rounded, without lobe and partly divided distally. Ventral spines: T 1 1 - 1 - 1, T 2 1 - 1-2, M 1 & M 2 2 - 2, T 3 and T 4 2 - 2, M 3 and M 4 with a distal circle of spines.
