A recent addition to the Tlitocatl genus which is only found in the Mexico state of Guerrero. It is entirely black with reddish setae (hair) on the dorsal part of the abdomen and has a light coloured carapace by contrast. It is presumed that there is two colour forms: one – with the carapace having distinct almost black “V” marking on the anterior face (similar to B.emilia) and the second which has a plain carapace without the marking. This species is found in dry thorn forests where they live in burrows under large rocks. Its distribution is sympatric with the well known Mexican Red Knee (B.hamorri) but its range is not as wide.
