This species is widely distributed in Laos. In some female specimens a knob-shaped scapus is present ( Figs. 8-9View Figs. 8 - 9). Specimens without this scapus exhibit a hardly recognisable insertion area, which is not illustrated in Zhu & Zhang (1993) or Zhu et al. (2003). It seems to be a predetermined breaking point, as very low pressure causes a break-off of the scapus.
