Diagnostic characters for the new taxon are: lateral eyes positioned on peduncles arising from the upper edge of the carapace, large, protruding anterior median eyes that are twice the diameter of the posterior median eyes, the opistosoma dorsally wider than long and attached one quarter distance from the anterior end, overhanging spinnerets with the posterior edge notched; opistosoma with 3 pairs of posteriorly directed humps and 3 pairs of sigilla, large palps with a wide cymbium and narrow paracymbium curved at the tip, a large median apophysis with a ventral tubercle and forked tip, and the terminal apothesis with a forked tip. A review of araneid spiders in Dominican amber is provided.
