In addition, the typically double cheliceral dentition, ozophore type, and male genitalia are in accordance with traditionally defined pettalid synapomorphies.
Cheliceral furrow with 2 anterior and 4 posterior teeth; with 4 long bristles at posterior base of fang.
Similarly, duration and frequency of cheliceral tapping by spidermites was also significantly increased on whitefly nymph-infested leaves, even when the nymphs were no longer present, indicating again that palatability may have declined in response to whitefly feeding.
Chelicerae small, downward-directed; cheliceral furrow and fang very short; prolateral lamina small but distinct.
Chelicerae (length 118-123) with two setiform, barbed cheliceral setae; cha (36-41) longer than chb (24-28).

Chelicerae with 3 or 4 prolateral and 2-4 retrolateral teeth on cheliceral furrow, uncommonly 3 or 2 teeth.
No additional teeth on the chelicerae nor bifurcated cheliceral tips or other structures related to cocoon opening were found in the emerged spiderlings.
