MALES: Total length, 8.0 to 11.0 mm.
Chelicerae 0.6 to 0.9 mm. wide and 2.1 to 2.7 mm. long. Propeltidium 0.7
to 1.6 mm. wide and 0.8 to 1.7 mm.
long. Holotype larger. Color
and markings in alcohol pale yellow, with dusky purplish markings
similar to those on A. pilosa except that legs and palpi pale on coxae,
trochanters, and bases of femora; pale stripes on peltidia and abdominal
sclerites not well defined. Dentition somewhat atypical (fig. 54,
55). Fixed finger elongate and attenuated beyond reduced, spur-like,
anterior and medial teeth. Intermediate tooth of movable finger minute.
Dental group of movable finger occupying slightly more than one-third of
length of finger. Flagellum spatulate, fringed at margins near distal
end, curled mesially to cover most of mesial surface and attached to
finger in front of first fondal tooth of mesial row. Palpi with
usual clothing of long and short hairs and scattered cylinder bristles
on tarsi, metatarsi, and tibiae. Metatarsi also provided apically with
one single and two pairs of strong, cylindrical spines. Chelicerae
nearly four times as wide as long. Propeltidium slightly longer than
wide. Eyes separated by slightly more than one diameter.
DIAGNOSIS: The cheliceral profile and
possession of two paired and one unpaired cylindrical spines on the palpal
metatarsus identify the species.
