slightly pointed rear. The legs are not described in detail, but some spines
are mentioned. The carapace is mainly orange or orange-brown with a broad yellow
band near the margin. The eye surrounds of the front median eyes are brown-black
and for the rest they are black. The abdomen is yellowish with numerous flecks
of grey squamose hairs. The legs are yellow with grey, lateral streaks on femora
