TYPE LOCALITY AND TYPE REPOSITORY. Sudan, Duroor , 60 miles N of Suakin ; BMNH.

TYPE MATERIAL EXAMINED. Sudan, Duroor , 60 miles N of Suakin, 1♀ A (holotype), BMNH No. 1894.11.2.39 .

DIAGNOSIS: First to fourth metasomal segments ventrally with two median carinae and granulated. Fifth metasomal segment ventrally with median carina and granulated. Metasoma very thin. Length to width ratio of fourth metasomal segment higher than 1.6. Movable fingers bear 6 rows of granules, usually with internal and external granules. Chela of pedipalp dorsally smooth, without strong carinae.

DISTRIBUTION. Sudan (Pocock, 1895: 315). Birula (1917: 215) listed this species for Somalia without any precise data. Since its taxonomic position is questionable and it can be easily confused with other species, namely of the genus Butheolus , I consider its occurrence unproven also in Djibouti (Moriggi, 1941: 91).
