This genus consists only of the type species, M. pauperculus Simon, 1902 from Java and M. animosus Peckham & Peckham, 1907 from Sarawak. The description by Simon is brief. The carapace is yellowish-red with a very thin black margin. The cephalus and each side is black and there are some long whitish-yellow hairs. The abdomen is almost circular, broad at the front. It is, pale brown with a few dark spots and there is a short, dark, median stripe anteriorly. Abdomen and female genitalia drawn by Proszynski, 1987. The authors of M. animosus give a more detailed description but are not certain that their specimens are congeners.
