IntroductionMales of exigua can be distinguished from flavipedes and flaviceps by the mostly dark brown legs, the thin retrolateral ramus (Chamberlin, 1925b), and the more twisted prolateral ramus. The black spot on the chelicerae is much broader than in flavipedes. Females of exigua have more strongly convergent epigynal flaps and an extremely broad second curve of the internal ducts.
