Diagnosis

Differs from other species of the genus by its darker coloration, legs with no fringe, longer chelicerae, and much wider and heavier embolus ( Fig. 6 View Fig E–F). Copulatory openings oriented antero-laterally, accessory glands situated posteriorly on spermathecae ( Fig. 7G View Fig ).

Etymology

This species is named for Dr. Dmitri Logunov, a distinctive Russian arachnologist (now at the University of Manchester), a friend of ours.
