Diagnosis. Males can be differentiated from all other Aptostichus species on the basis of a unique conformation of the retrolateral distal-most spination pattern of tibia I, which comprises 3 - 6 spines arranged in a distinct cluster, a low rounded metatarsal mating apophysis that bears a single strong spine, and a convex shaped (curved) tarsus (Figs 266, 269, 272); all other known species lack this combination.
Etymology. The specific epithet is a noun in apposition taken from name of canyon near the type locality, Sin Nombre.
