Original description
Muma, 1986: 11, figs 26-27:

female holotype:  Total length 22.0 mm.

                             LENGTH             WIDTH
Chelicerae         5.6 mm                 2.1 mm.
Propeltidium    2.3                         4.2
Palpi                   16.0                       CL/CW=2.67           
Leg 1                   13.0                       PW/PL=1.83
Leg 4                   20.0                       A/CP=6.20
                                                            

        Coloration in alcohol pale yellow with a dusky purple eye tubercle, and a faintly dusky tarsus and metatarsus of the palpus.  All other structures are pale with an unusual pale lavender tinge at the margins..
        Structure seemingly similar to that of other females of the group as indicated by the above measurements and ratios, and the cheliceral profile shown in figure 26.  However, the opercula are distinctive as shown in figure 27; there is a low rounded mesal tooth on the movable cheliceral finger, and there are no claws on the tarsi of leg 1.  There are no distinguishable trace ctenidia on the first post-stigmatic abdominal sternite.
