Diagnosis. The structure of the pedipalp is similar to that in R. lateripunctatus  described below, but differs in the clearly shorter tibia, the longer embolus, the longer proximal lobe of bulb and the blunt tip of the tibial apophysis (pointed in R. lateripunctatus  ).

Etymology. The name is derived from the Latin for beautiful.

Description. Measurements. Cephalothorax: length 1.9, width 1.3, height 0.7. Abdomen: length 1.9, width 1.1. Eye field: length 0.7, anterior width 1.1, posterior width 1.2.

Some bristles near eyes, sparse colourless hairs on carapace. Clypeus low, dark; chelicerae with two teeth on promargin and single retromarginal tooth, all teeth small ( Fig. 108View FIGURES 107–112), dorsal surfaces of chelicerae with few white scales. Mouth parts and sternum light brown. Abdomen oval, black streak along its anterior margin, dorsum with brown pattern on cream background; brown patches form faint median belt, with darker brown stripes marked by light dots laterally. Sides brown, venter light with three grey streaks. Hairs corresponding to background colour cover abdomen. Spinnerets dark. Legs light brown with darker femora and distal ends of tibiae, clothed in dense brown hairs. Tibia I with three pairs of ventral spines, metatarsus with two pairs and single spine on prolateral surface at distal end. Pedipalps dark yellow. Palpal tibia short, apophysis with blunt tip ( Fig. 111View FIGURES 107–112).
