Comment: embolus v. long, half encircling bulbus, bulbus turned 180 degrees, cheliceral   tooth unusual fissidentati with asymetrical crown - one cone very long.  
        Other characters seem to fit  Psecas, note shape of tibial apophysis. Tip of embolus slightly broadened - presumably plugging female copulatory  opening after copulation. 
Conclusion - new species (possibly whole group  of species) within Psecas. J. Proszynski, 15. X. 2005
