Paratypes: length of prodorsum: 415-425, width 275-285, height 365-375; length of notogaster: 695-705, width 665-670, height 775-780; ventral region: genito-aggenital plate 220×215, ano-adanal plate 185×170.
Integument. Surface of body and leg segments with filamentous cerotegument. Conspicuous microtubercles present on prodorsum and around leg acetabula, legs with dense fungal mycelic.
Prodorsum (Fig. 1). Triangular, propodolateral apophysis P distinct, with broader base and arched tip. Lamellar setae (le) and rostral setae (ro) both in dorsalaterad position, long, arched and tapered. Lamellar setae with obvious barbs, thick, being longer than slender, weakly barbed rostral pair. Bothridia well developed, funnel-like, with broad margin and pair of thick, heavily barbed sensillus. Interlamellar setae (in) long, thick and conspicuously barbed (specially in holotype). Exobothridial setae (ex) thick, with obvious barbs, frizzled. Comparative length of prodorsal setae: ex< in< ro< le< ss. Weakly developed transverseridge connected to the base of bothridium and directed to median end of prodorsum. Prodorsal tubercles Da absent, Ba distinct; Bp weakly developed, usually as tuberculate sclerotised ridge, in light microscope sometimes discernible only in lateral view.
Notogaster (Fig. 1). Circular viewed perpendicular to circumgastric scissure, length almost equivalent to wider. Spinae adnatae beak like, short, distinct, strongly curved inwards (about 30 µm in length), with broader base and quite sharp tip. Notogastral setae short, smooth, slender except c- series and p- series. Setae of c- series rather thick and long, with conspicuous barbed and frizzled tip, oriented forwards and the rest backwards. Comparative length of notogastral setae: lp< lm= ps3< ps2< la= h3= h2= h1< ps1< c1< c2. Pseudanal setae comparatively long, with obvious barbs, attenuate.
Ventral region. (Fig. 2). Epimere I with medial pit (cp). Epimeral setae mostly smooth except 1b, 1c, 3b, 3c, 4d; setae 1c, 3b, 3c, 4d long, with obvious barbs; Seta 1a, 2a and 3a rather short, lanciform. Epimeral setal formula: 3–1–3–4. Ano-genital setal formula: 6–1–2–3. Enantiophyses E2 and V present, E2a triangular with pointed tip; E2p weakly developed, usually as tuberculate sclerotised ridge. Ventrosejugal tubercle Va large, strong, represented by broad ridge; Vp represented by low, broadly curved ridge, with setae 3b Parastigmatic tubercle Sa long, acuminate, with broader base and heavily pointed tip; Sp small, triangular; Discidium (di) long, acuminate, with broader base and heavily pointed tip, directed posterolaterad.
Gnathosoma. Infracapitular mentum without noticeable microtubercles. Hypostomal setae a, m, h slender, weakly barbed. Chelicera rather strong, fixed and movable digits with four blunt teeth; setae cha with obvious barbsand chb smooth. Palpal setation: 0–2–1–3–8, including solenidion ω (Fig. 4M).
Legs. (Figs 5–6). Monodactylous, moderately long, leg I, III, IV longer than body, leg II shorter than body. Relative length of femur to tarsus of legs I to IV 1: 0.88: 1.01: 1.2. Leg IV 1.3 times ventral body length. Femur IV 1.4 times length of trochanter IV, proximal stalk 1.4 times length of bulb. Leg setae medium in length and thick, mostly with distinct short barbs on outer curvature. Setal formulas of legs as follows (from trochanter to tarsus, famulus and solenidia included): I: 1–7–4 (1)–4 (2)–20 (2); II: 1–6-4 (1)–4 (1)–18 (2); III: 2–4-3 (1)–3 (1)–16 (0); IV: 1–4-3 (1)–3 (1)–15 (0). Solenidia of genua I-II with companion seta d. Solenidia δ equivalent to seta d on genuaI, Solenidia δ shorter and thinner than seta d on genuaII. Solenidion φ1 on tibia I 3 times longer than φ2. Seta d absent from all tibiae, solenidia on all tibiae free, as usual for genus.

Etymology

The specific name is derived from the type locality, Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai province.

Remarks

This new species is characterised by following characters: interlamellar setae (in) long, rather thick and conspicuously barbed; spinae adnatae beak like, short, distinct, strongly curved inwards; c-series rather thick, long with conspicuous barbed and frizzled tip, oriented forwards and the rest backwards, other notogastral setae smooth, slender and short, except p- series (see Table 1). {| class="wikitable" ; style="width: 100%" |+ Table 1.
