Some morphological variation was found. Thus, in some individuals, the sternal lobe between male coxae 4 is subrectangular, in others subtrapeziform. Gonopod variation is also found in this species; the tip of process (plm) of lamina medialis seems to be slightly blunt in some specimens, slightly sharp in others.
