This species show considerable size variation, especially in males combined with a strong allometric growth of the chelicerae, which are in large specimens extraordinary bulgy at their frontal side. Male copulatory organs appear uniform, whereas female epigyna tend to vary in appearance of the epigynal folds posterior to the central epigynal pit.
