PLS three-segmented, length 2.96, basal segment 1.01, middle segment 0.78, apical segment 1.17, all digitiform
. PMS one-segmented, length 0.68.
2.5 mm diam.; petiole 0.9-2.1 mm long, less than the rachis; 1-3 extrafloral nectaries, brown, stipitate, digitiform
to ellipsoid, c.
These branchiate with distal digitiform
Genital pore oval; gonotyl with 20-23 digitiform
Spiders in the Family Theraphosidae are distinguished from other spiders by the presence of two pair of booklungs; cheliceral fangs open paraxial; maxillae and labial cuspules present; distinct lobe on the anterior maxillae; two pairs of spinnerets; posterior lateral spinnerets are digitiform
(finger-like); eight eyes in two close rectangular rows on a small anterior tubercle on the carapace; the legs and body are hirsute (hairy) and the tarsi (feet) are scopulated (padded) with retractable claw tufts (Raven, 1985).
Parapodium in the anterior segments has a short, rounded prechaetal lobe and digitiform
Distiphallus (Figs 11, 12) is an intricate structure: it has a large ventral process, which bears a digitiform
ventral process; both apical process and ventral edge above the ventral process serrate.
Cerci condensed, especially in apical area with a tapering basal and a digitiform
apical area, apex insensitive.
Two types of glandular trichomes, peltate and digitiform
ones, exist on the outer side of corollas (Figure 6(a)).
The character of shape seems to be no use, since two local types of red sponges that were collected showed quite remarkable morphological differences: Desmapsamma anchorata Carter, 1882 is digitiform
, while Tedania ignis Duchassaing & Michelotti, 1864 has a massive body consistency (Figure 3b and d).
The epididymides are convoluted, unpigmented and digitiform
