The cephalothorax and legs in particular seem very shiny, coppery with a rose-gold sheen. The abdomen has faint hollow spots that become more apparent with increasing age. The abdomen is a similar colour to the legs and cephalothorax and also has a series of chevrons and a small lighter band on the opisthosoma.
