Diagnosis. Females of this species resembles C. platensis   comb. nov. and C. santamaria   sp. nov., can be distiguised from the species above by the shape of the internal genitalia, which is slightly rounded posteriorly in this species and with a lip-like projected posterior border in C. platensis   comb. nov., differs from C. santamaria   sp. nov. by lacking a stalk-like projection in the anterior portion of the internal genitalia ( Figs 66F View FIGURES 66 , 67H View FIGURES 67 , 99H View FIGURES 99 ).

Description. Male. Unknown.

Female ( MCZ PBI _ OON 21268 View Materials ). Total length: 1.86. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace orange-brown, broadly oval in dorsal view, pars cephalica slightly elevated in lateral view, surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica smooth, sides granulate, without radiating rows of pits; lateral margin without denticles. Clypeus straight in front view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more, around AME diameter. Eyes normal sized eyes, all subequal; ALE separated by more than their diameter, PLE-PME separated by less than PME radius. Sternum orange-brown, fused to carapace, furrow smooth, surface smooth, microsculpture only medially, posterior margin not extending posteriorly of coxae IV; setae originating from surface. Mouthparts: Chelicerae, endites and labium orange-brown. Labium anterior margin indented at middle. ABDOMEN: rounded posteriorly; dorsum soft portions pale white. Pedicel scuto-pedicel region with paired curved scutal ridges, plumose setae absent. Dorsal scutum orange-brown, middle surface punctate, sides granulate. Epigastric scutum anterior spiracles at epigastric furrow under a fold in the same longitudinal line of booklungs, secondary spiracles inconspicuous. Postepigastric scutum orange-brown, almost semicircular. LEGS: orange-brown. GENITALIA: internal genitalia with rounded receptaculum ( Fig. 66F View FIGURES 66 ).

Other material examined. None.
