peruvianus by its darker coloration, smaller size, and differences in cheliceral
dentition (compare Figs.
The distal margin of the cheliceral
paturon is bidentate.
Chelicerae (length 131) chelate-dentate; cheliceral
setae setiform, barbed, cha (61) longer than chb (32).
setae setiform, barbed; cha (36-41) slightly longer, than chb (24-28).
dentition identical to that of the female.
Chelicerae: With abundant fine white setae on the internal and ventral surfaces; cheliceral
dentition characteristic of the family Buthidae (Vachon 1963).
promargin with three teeth, retromargin with two teeth; shaggy seta distinct (Figs 5, 6); labium trapezoidal, wider than long; endites straight laterally with indistinct serrula comprising short blunt denticles, with dense maxillar hair tuft on mesal margins (Figs 7, 8).
characters were proposed as synapomorphies for the enlarged superfamily Palpimanoidea by Forster and Platnick (1984): the presence of peg teeth (modified setae) on the promargin of the cheliceral
furrow, and the presence of an elevated cheliceral
face with scopulae; inner margin with 15 teeth and some basal denticles.
Only the male of this species has on each basal cheliceral
segment a groove above the fang and an adjacent lateral carina.
