       Color and markings in alcohol apparently almost identical with those of T. arcus. The holotype of the latter species has been preserved for a much longer period of time and is somewhat faded.
       Dentition similar to that of T. arcus except both fixed and movable fingers slightly undulate rather than arched, and fondal teeth graded in size I, II, III, IV (fig. 18).
       Structure very similar to that of T. arcus except scopula on metatarsus of palpus composed of 40 or fewer papillae and very thin distally (fig. 19).
