Urosomal segments and caudal rami with proportions 46 : 19 : 12: 23 = 100.
Nota male: - Prosome-Urosome ratio 3.1 : 1. - Posterior corners of pediger 5 naked. - Urosomal segments also unusually unarmed (variability shown in fig.1F) - Caudal rami nearly as broad as long. - Proportions of urosomal segments and caudal rami 11 : 29 : 23 : 8 : 12 : 17 = 100.
