IntroductionIn general appearance, strongly resembles other Pelegrina species, but lacks the characteristic Pelegrina embolus with subterminal opening and two rami. The most distinctive features are the embolus whose erect portion twists and tapers towards tip and the distinct bend on the epigynal flaps. This species is only tentatively placed in Pelegrina, for the embolus has its opening terminal and lacks two distinct rami.
