(Martini & Goeze, 1778)
The dark-brown ground colour is partly hidden by a fairly dense clothing of red-brown and white squamose hairs. These hairs are distributed to make up a characteristic pattern with the front of the head divided by a thin white stripe continuing back behind the eyes, where it broadens to form a wide, pale median band. Two less distinct lines originate in the eye region, and run backwards and towards the margins of the carapace. Abdomen reddish-brown with wide pale median band, sometimes enclosing a darker area anteriorly. Legs dark brown, but ringed with red-brown and white squamose hairs.
Female 6-10 mm; male 6 mm.
Characters of genus:
The genus is distinguished from most other
genera by the following characters: Posterior row of eyes strongly procurved. The distance between the posterior laterals, and the posterior medials or the anterior medials is about the same. The distance between the anterior medials, and the posterior laterals is also subequal. Legs IV are longer than legs III.
Thorell, 1870 (Lynx Spiders).
Characters of family:
The members of the family are characterized by spinose legs, the spines erect and pointing in all directions. Also the hexagonal arrangement of the eyes is characteristic. Abdomen tapers to a blunt point posteriorly.
