Remarks. Small spiders (5–6mm length) with marked white striae on the rear face of the cephalothorax and ovate abdomens. Chelicerae are unident in pattern with one small promarginal teeth and one small retromarginal tooth. Leg 1 is longest, followed by leg 4, then leg 2 and finally leg 3. There are no fringes on the patella or tibia. The endites are rounded distally in both sexes. The palps are long and relatively narrow. The tibial apophysis is single but varies between species in size and shape. Tegulum with a large ventral bulge. The origin of the embolus is on the distal anterior edge of the tegulum and arise from a broad well developed base. It varies greatly in form from species to species. In the females the atria have well sclerotised, C-shaped margins. The insemination ducts rise from the anterior margins of the atria through narrow entrances and pass posteriorly to the distal edges of the spermathecae. These are towards the midline and very close to the epigastic fold. Each fertilization duct arises from a very small diverticulum placed on the median edge of the spermatheca. The gastric fold is well sclerotised and includes a small median pouch.
