From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Differs from all other Desmoxytes species by the combination of the following characters; collum with three rows of 5+5 anterior, 1(2)+1(2) intermediate, and 3+3 posterior setiferous tubercles; metaterga 2–8 with two rows of 3+3 (anterior row) and 3+3 (posterior row) setiferous cones; metaterga 9–17 with two rows of 4(3)+4(3) (anterior row) and 4(5)+4(5) (posterior row) setiferous cones; sternal cone between male coxae 4 incompletely bilobed, cordiform; lateral lamella of distal lobe (dlm) on lamina medialis broad and thin, demarcated from broad lobe (blm) by a deep indentation. [details]

Habitat The animals were crawling on litter inside rock holes; some specimens were seen crawling on rock walls near the cave [details]

Remark There is considerable variation in tip of process (plm) of lamina medialis within populations. The process tip in some specimens is bifurcate as two small spines whereas in other specimens it may be relatively blunt. [details]
