Etymology. The specific name refers to the type locality. It is to be treated as a noun in apposition.

Diagnosis. The species can be recognized by the granulose carapace ( Figs 113E View FIGURES 113 , 115E View FIGURES 115 ), differently of all other species of the group which have smooth tegument at carapace ( Figs 103A View FIGURES 103 , 106A View FIGURES 106 , 110A View FIGURES 110 , 116E View FIGURES 116 ).

Description. Male ( PBI _ OON 25561 View Materials ). Total length 1.63. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace dark red-brown, broadly oval in dorsal view, pars cephalica strongly elevated in lateral view, surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica granulate, sides granulate; lateral margin without denticles. Clypeus straight in front view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more, twice ALE diameter. Eyes all subequal; ALE separated by more than their diameter, PLE-PME separated by less than PME radius. Sternum pale orange, fused to carapace, furrow smooth, surface smooth, microsculpture absent, anterior margin with continuous transverse groove, posterior margin not extending posteriorly of coxae IV, groove at anterior margin very shallow; setae originating from surface. Mouthparts: Chelicerae, endites and labium pale orange. Chelicerae anterior face unmodified, brush on inner margin very strong; retromargin without teeth; fangs without tooth-like projections; paturon inner margin with brush, laminate groove absent. Labium anterior margin indented at middle. Endites: anteromedian part forming a groove between serrula and the apical portion. ABDOMEN: pointed posteriorly; dorsum soft portions pale white. Book lung covers slightly elevated. Pedicel scuto-pedicel region unmodified, plumose setae absent. Dorsal scutum dark red-brown, middle surface smooth, sides smooth. Epigastric scutum anterior spiracles secondary openings at level of epigastric furrow in an indent. Postepigastric scutum dark red-brown, almost semicircular, with short posteriorly directed lateral apodemes. Spinneret scutum middle sized. Dorsum setae sparse LEGS: pale orange. GENITALIA: Epigastric region with sperm pore circular, situated in front of anterior spiracles, rebordered. Palp proximal segments pale orange. Conductor flattened laterally, with short and curved distal tip; embolar tip a translucent tube with very long embolar distal process; embolar prolateral process narrow, with narrow translucent and undulated dorsal area ( Figs 113G View FIGURES 113 ̅H, 114A̅D).

Female ( PBI _ OON 25561 View Materials ). Total length 1.92. As in male except as noted. CEPHALOTHORAX: Mouthparts: paturon inner margin with short inter-digitating setae. GENITALIA: internal genitalia “V” shaped, reduced anterior area, enlarged lateral apodemes abruptly narrowing towards distal end, receptaculum rounded ( Fig. 115H View FIGURES 115 ).
