Diagnosis. This species is easily recognized from all other known species by the slender, upright conductor and embolus (Fig. 4 A), and by the retrolateral apophysis on palpal tibia in males (Figs 4 B – D). Females of this new species are similar to those of L. mulcatus comb. n. in having one spermathecae on arched, tubiform stalks on each side (Fig. 5 A), but can be distinguished by a flattened base of the spermathecae, compared with a bulging base in L. mulcatus.
Etymology. The specific name is from the Chinese pinyin for ribbon (Si Dai), in reference to the shape of conductor; noun in apposition.
