Original description
Muma, 1963: 4, fig 10 (as Therobates nudus):

male holotype: Total length, 13.5 mm.

                            LENGTH         WIDTH
Chelicerae         3.7 mm             1.7 mm.
Propeltidium    1.7                     2.7
Palpi                   14.0               
1st legs               10.0              
4th legs              17.0 


        Coloration, dentition and structure of this species are very similar to that of T. arcus.  The dentition of this species differs in a more massive fixed finger, a fondal notch that is deeper than it is wide but narrower than the base of the fixed finger and a minute intermediate tooth in addition to one at the base of the principal tooth (Figure 10).  Differences in structure include the lack of a palpal scopula and the lack of abdominal ctenidia.
