Original description
Muma, 1962: 26 (fig 41), 28 (key), 29:

MALE HOLOTYPE: Total length, 23.0 mm.

                            LENGTH         WIDTH
Chelicerae         7.4 mm.            2.4 mm.
Propeltidium   3.5                      4.5

Legs and palpi mangled and not measurable.
       
Specimen shriveled and faded by preservation, but color in alcohol apparently similar to that of regalis.
        Dentition also similar to that of C. regalis. The most striking difference in dentition is the constriction and attenuation of the fixed finger of the present species (fig. 41). Another distinct difference is the complete lack of fondal teeth I and II on this species, whereas C. regalis has these teeth small but distinct. In addition there are two tiny supernumerary intermediate teeth on the movable finger.
        Structure similar to that of C. regalis, but this species lacks a scopula on the metatarsus of the palpus whereas C. regalis has a basal scopula composed of numerous papillae.
