Diagnosis: This species is similar to Neriene compta Zhu & Sha, 1986   and Neriene nitens Chen & Zhu, 1991   in having the large atrium opening, similar copulatory grooves which have about one and a half coils, but can be distinguished from the latter two species by the following characters: both spermatheca and turning-point long, slender, significantly curved in N. compta   and N. nitens   , but just slightly long and curved in N. calozonata   ( Figs 13 View FIGURE 13 , 14 View FIGURE 14 B–C, 47A–C, 49C–E).

Description of female: The measurements see Chen & Zhu, 1989. Epigynum ( Figs 13A View FIGURE 13 , 14B View FIGURE 14 ): In ventral view, atrium opening large. Parmula arising from dorsal wall, semicircular with rounded tip, and with a small semicovered depression on its ventral surface. Vulva ( Figs 13B View FIGURE 13 , 14C View FIGURE 14 ): Vulva as long as wide; copulatory grooves started mesally, with about one and a half coils; fertilization grooves enter the spermathecae, with about one and a half coils; turning-points situated laterally, pointing towards mesally; spermathecae slender, pointing towards laterally. Female habitus as in Fig. 14A View FIGURE 14 .
