The specific name refers to the Latin word "tegula", meaning the aedeagus with tegular process in dorsal margin.
The arrangement of two tegular apophyses arising proximally from the tegulum in a 6- to 7-o'clock position is characteristic (Figs 1-3).
There is a distal tubular membrane between the tegulum and embolus that binds them through the distal tegular projection on one side and the distal sclerotized tube of the embolus on the other side.
Males can be recognized by embolus with thread originating near base of tegular sclerite, and females by widely separated epigynal teeth and posteriorly extended spermathecal heads (Figs.
Diagnosis: The male is similar to Sibianor kenyaensis Logunov, 2000, but the position of the tegular knob of the palp is different.
Subtegulum and tegulum aligned via haematodocha; tegular sperm duct visible, straight to strongly curved (e.
Bulb much longer than wide, with 2 tegular apophyses; the median one uncinate, the apical one thorn-like shaped.
Species of this genus can be recognized by the posterior narrowing of the eye region, males by the large dark palpal cymbium, dorsal tibial apophysis with a row of elongate scales and elongate prolateral tegular process, and females by the epigyne with a paired posterior depression containing the copulatory openings, posterior margin of epigyne with paired lobes, and the simple internal structure of the spermathecae.
3); uniformly yellow-brown to dark grey; cephalic area gradually sloping laterally; row of AE recurved to slightly procurved; PME never more than half their diameter apart; leg formula IV > I > II > III; male pedipalp without articulated tegular apophysis; lateral apophysis present; embolus a thin, curved spine and mostly covered by tegulum in ventral view; epigynum variable, often protruding scape-like posteriorly.
Cymbium only slightly curved, post-tegular section less than tegular length, embolus position variable; palpal tibia with single apophysis 8
marathaus in Lee's (1966) figure: a pointed lobe (OTL1) situated on a basal tegular projection and a sinuous prolateral sclerite on the tegulum (see Santos & Gonzaga 2003:9, figs.
