IntroductionMales can be distinguished from those of flavipedes and exigua by the bulbous cephalic area, dark lateral spots on the chelicerae, carapace dusted with pale scales, and pale yellow legs. Females can be difficult to distinguish from those of flavipedes and exigua; they are generally paler, lack white spots on the forehead, often have narrow dark lines on the femora, and may have the cephalic area slightly swollen. The epigynal flaps and ducts are intermediate between those of flavipedes and exigua. The medial black spot on the chelicerae is much more distinct in flaviceps females than in flavipedes females.
