Metasoma and mesosoma black, legs and pedipalps mostly yellow to yellowish green. Movable fingers bear 9 or 10 rows of granules that have internal and external granules. Chela of pedipalp dorsally smooth, without strong carinae. Tarsomere I of first to third legs with bristlecombs, tarsomere I of fourth legs without bristlecombs.

COMMENTS. The lectotype is being designated in order to stabilize the nomenclature. Fet & Lowe (2000: 88) listed 5 syntypes at BMNH and one paratype at ZMUH, but no specimens have been found at BMNH. Therefore ,

I designate as the lectotype one specimen deposited at ZMUH .
