IntroductionMarkings whitish instead of yellow distinguish it from insignis. Embolus narrower at tip than in montana, insignis, chaimona, dithalea, much as in balia and chalceola, though these have different markings and a wider carapace than clemata. The tegulum`s prominent bulge is unusual. The dark epigynum with a prominent shiny mound behind the flaps is distinctive.
