F, 2 M, Wright’s Ck, 28.i. 1996, O. Seeman ( S 74089 View Materials - 91). All collected from M. australasicus and deposited in QM.

Diagnosis. Both sexes: idiosoma 1210–1275 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 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 63–83 long, as long or longer than base of tritosternum; setae st 2 75 long; sternogynial shield smooth, anterior margin straight. Male: tetartosternum absent, presternal processes articulated with sternoventral shield, symmetrical, crescent-shaped, directed outwards ( Fig. 14 View FIGURE 14 a); sternoventral shield (anterior of genital opening) smooth; seta st 1 40–45 long; genital opening placed between CxII–III, flanked by 16–20 pores.
