Diagnosis. Both sexes: idiosoma   1210 long; anterior hyaline projection does not extend past CxI; exopodal patterning between CxII –III striped; pedofossae III present, IV absent; seta h 1 with 4–6 barbs; distal spine-like process on palp femur minute or absent; one non-filamentous excrescence ribbon-like, the other a short serrated blade; femur III and IV with large lamellae. Female: sternal shield reticulated; seta st 1 20-25 long, much shorter than base of tritosternum; setae st 2-4 10–15 long; sternogynial shield smooth, anterior margin straight. Male: tetartosternum absent, presternal processes articulated with sternoventral shield, symmetrical, elongate and crescent-shaped, tips separate from each other; sternoventral shield (anterior of genital opening) reticulated; seta st 1 70–85 long; genital opening placed between CxII –III, flanked by 16–18 pores.
