of metatarsi and tarsi I-III undivided; scopulae
of metatarsi and tarsi IV divided by rows of setae in male.
Vellard originally placed the genus in Barychelidae, probably due to the wide labium with few cuspules, absence of tibial apophysis, short apical segment of the posterior lateral spinnerets and well developed leg scopulae
, mainly on tarsi I and II, resembling claw tufts.
on tarsus and metatarsus I-II present, only slightly developed.
Endites slightly convergent, longer than wide with a dense scopulae
in internal margin.
on tarsus and metatarsus of leg I and II, dark gray in color.
Legs: Leg formula IV > I > II > III; coloration as male; all tarsi and metatarsi I and II (only in apical half) with dense scopulae
; spination of leg I (based on paratype SAM NN14032): Femur: 6 dorsal, 2 apicoprolateral; tibia: 3 ventral pairs, 1 (small) prolateral; metatarsus: 2 ventral pairs, 1 apicoventral, 1 apicoprolateral, 1 apicoretrolateral, 1 (small) prolateral.
Females with dense scopulae
on the tarsi of all legs, metatarsi I-III and the apical two thirds of tibiae I+II.
Juvenile Theraphosinae Thorell 1870 have divided tarsal scopulae
that become entire in the adult stage, in Ischnocolinae the scopulae
remain divided into adulthood (Pocock 1897; Gerschman de Pikelin & Schiapelli 1973; Perez-Miles 1994).
Legs of both sexes with scopulae
on tarsi I--II and also on metatarsi I--II of females and some males; male tibia I usually with prolateral clasping spurs.
The extent of tarsal and metatarsal scopulae
on ventral side of both leg segments was expressed as a percentage of the total length of segment, from apical end.
Their movements are erratic, and with their claw tufts and scopulae
they are able to move around swiftly on the substrate.
Maxillae yellowish brown with dense black scopulae
, distinctly longer than wide, medially constricted outer lateral margin without setae, somewhat narrow basally, broad apically.
