Description. Male: Cephalothorax ( Figs 67, 68 View FIGURES 67 – 76 ) mid orange-brown, darkening to the sides with scattered darker patches on the pars cephalica and distinct bulges on the median sides of PLE ( Fig. 70 View FIGURES 67 – 76 ). Faint, darker striae radiating from the foveal area across the pars thoracica. Chelicerae ( Fig. 69 View FIGURES 67 – 76 ) orange, straight, expanded and rounded on the median edge with horizontal ripples down the anterior surface. Two small, unevenly sized, promarginal teeth and one small, retromarginal tooth. Endites, labium and sternum orange. Endite distinctively shaped with lateral wing-like extensions. Dorsal abdomen ( Fig. 67 View FIGURES 67 – 76 ) dirty brown with a pair of longitudinal faint black stripes and darker patterning on the sides. Spinnerets brown. Ventral abdomen dirty brown with faint darker longitudinal stripes. A thick median lip on the posterior abdomen immediately anterior to the spinnerets. Legs orange-brown, L 1 more robust and larger than other legs, with femur darker and vertically flattened and a line of four strong spines on the anterior side of the tibia. Ventral, light coloured, fringe on the patella and tibia of L 1 and L 2. Palp ( Figs 71–75 View FIGURES 67 – 76 ): orange-brown, tibia and cymbium covered with thick long brown hairs. Tibia with a distinct ventral distal median lip overlapping the tegulum. Medium-sized apophysis, with corkscrew shape, tapering in the last third to a point. The long thin embolus has an origin on the anterior edge of the round tegulum and forms a clockwise three-quarter circle around it (left palp).
