Opisthosoma: dorsum with median ridge shorter than submedian ridges, 1 st dorsal annulus broad, dorsal annuli with about 33 annuli, with spiny microtubercles at median ridge, 1 st 3 dorsal annuli 14 long, ventral annuli with about 58 microtuberculate rings; lateral setae (c 2) 11 long, LtLt 52 apart, Lt\Vt 1 46, LtVt 1 24; 1 st ventral setae (d) 23 long, Vt 1 Vt 1 31 apart, Vt 1 \Vt 2 27, Vt 1 Vt 2 24; 2 nd ventral setae (e) 8 long, Vt 2 Vt 2 10 apart, Vt 2 \Vt 3 40, Vt 2 Vt 3 36; 3 rd ventral setae (f) 7 long, Vt 3 Vt 3 8 apart; accessory setae (h 1) absent.

Type data: Holotype female, TAICHUNG: Hoping, 31 Oct. 1996, K. W. Huang; ex Trochodendron aralioides S. et Z. (Trochodendraceae). (deposited at NMNS). Paratypes, 2 females, data same as for holotype.
