Epigyne with two rounded depressions, plugged with waxy secretion in numerous specimens; copulatory openings situated prolaterally beneath oblique sclerotized cup-like atria within depressions (Figs 66, 67); internal structure typical for members of the subgenus Helafricanus, with seminal ducts converging anteriorly, with small spermathecae (Fig.
81, seminal ducts very long and narrow, forming several loops; spermathecae narrow and tubiform.
Diagnosis: The female is recognised by the structure of the epigyne, which has very long seminal ducts forming a loop in the anterior part of the epigyne (see Wesolowska 2001: fig.
170, copulatory openings large; seminal ducts narrow, weakly sclerotized; accessory glands very large, spherical.
Seminal ducts long, twisted; large accessory glands enter laterally into seminal ducts, receptacles narrow, long, medially placed (Figs 177, 178).
adustus Wesolowska, 2006, but its receptacles are clearly larger and the seminal ducts longer, with additional small spherical reservoirs.
Atria depressed with strongly sclerotized circular lips; seminal ducts long, forming three loops, accompanying by large spherical vesicles; accessory glands present (Fig.
Seminal ducts weakly sclerotized, very broad, forming a loop; spermathecae with a few chambers (Fig.
The internal structure is slightly similar to that in Langelurillus primus Prochniewicz, 1994 from Kenya, but differs having shorter seminal ducts and the spermathecae placed perpendicularly to the epigastric furrow (parallel in L.
The females are difficult to tell apart, but the course of the distal part of the seminal ducts and the shape of the spermathecae are different (compare Fig.
