Intercheliceral sclerite elongated into a horn as in other Allococalodes and Cocalodes. Palpus (Figs 16–17) with embolus short and accompanied by a conductor and median apophysis, as in the other two species of Allococalodes (Wanless 1982). Median apophysis flat, leaf-like. Tibia of first leg with three pairs of ventral macrosetae; first metatarsus with three pairs. Carapace high, with posterior eyes on tubercles and area of fovea concave. PME large.

Recumbent golden-orange setae concentrated near eyes and over heart; white setae over thoracic stripe; black elsewhere. Palpi pale olive yellow except cymbium red-brown.

Tibia of first leg with three pairs of ventral macrosetae; first metatarsus with 3 pairs. Epigynum (Fig. 18) with two small posterior openings. Carapace high, with posterior eyes on tubercles and area of fovea concave. PME large. Colour (Figs 12, 14, 15): as in male. Natural history. All specimens were found on moss-covered surfaces within a few metres of a shaded stream in the forest at mid elevation. Most were on moss-covered trunks of small trees and vines (Fig. 87).
