Original description
Muma, 1989: 28-29, figs 41-42:

male hotoype: Total length 14.0 mm.

                            LENGTH         WIDTH
Chelicerae         4.7 mm            1.8 mm.
Propeltidium    2.1                    3.1
Palpi                   17.0                  CL/CW=2.61
First Legs           13.0                  PW/PL=1.48
Fourth Legs       20.5                  A/CP=7.43         
                                                        CP=6.8 

       
       Coloration in alcohol questionable.  Specimen was at one time dried out.  Palpi seem to be dusky apically on femora and all of tibiae, metatarsi, and tarsi.  All othe structures are apparently pale.
        Structure similar to other species of group as indicated in measurements and ratios, figure 41 of chelicerae, and figure 42 of ctenidia.  No mesal tooth on movable finger; mesoventral groove of fixed cheliceral finger does not extend basally into fondal notch; fondal tooth sizes are I, III, II, IV for ectal row and I, II, III, IV for mesal row.  There are 14 or 15 long slender spine-like setae ventrally on femora and tibia of palpi; those on the metatarsi are indistinguishable.
