The last image shows that upper parafacials really with a row of hairs.
But I think that my first identification requires some correction: there are 2 European species with such hairs and your female is another one: F. leucosticta
The common difference is that leucosticta has abdominal tergites with triple spots, whereas in pusio abdomen is evenly glossy black. These spots are probably visible on the first image, but difficult to be sure. But we could see that fronto-orbital plates are dusted (mostly glossy in female pusio) and scutum with 3 thin brownish vittae (indistinct in pusio). So, F. leucosticta

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1
0.1111/j.1365-3113
.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
