6A-B) on the fixed and free rami of the chelicera (Huxley and Salter 1859; Clarke and Ruedemann 1912; Miller 2007a).
Each chelicera has one curved terminal denticle, one primary denticle, and intermediate and smaller denticles in between, for a total of approximately 25 denticles.
Ventrianal shield vase shaped; chelicera fixed digit with 2 sub apical teeth; Setae r3 less than R1 in length .
Ventrianal shield ovoid; chelicera fixed digit with 3 sub apical teeth; setae r3 = R1 in length .
Using the methods of Muma (1951), Brookhart & Muma (1981, 1987), Muma & Brookhart (1988), and Brookhart & Cushing (2004), we measured total length; length ofpalpus, leg I, leg IV; length and width of chelicera
and propeltidium; width of base of fixed finger; and length and width of female genital operculum using Spot Basic [TM] with an Olympus SZX12 microscope at 25X magnification.

23 long, movable digit without a tooth, fixed digit with 2 teeth (Fig.
150 long; terminating in a claw; dorsal and ventral sides with lobes; with one dorsolateral simple seta (Fig.
slightly protruding, proximal article with dorsal and ventral crest, and dual cheliceral dentition.
