T. ocelote (fig. 4, fig. 5) is a small species, the total body length is under 40 mm. It has a mottled pattern and the ground coloration is yellowish to reddish- brown. The keels are well constituted and many granules are present. It has 13 rows of granules on the fixed finger of the pedipalp and 11-14 pectinal teeths (Francke & Stockwell, 1987). Their distribution ranges from the North Atlantic side in Costa Rica to some small populations in the southern part of this country in Central America. They also occur in Panama, where they are only known from northwestern part of the country, from the Bocas del Toro archipelago (Teruel & Cozijn, 2011). Their typical habitat is arboreal. This species is mostly found among dry and living bushes near the underground, as well in medium sized plants, like ferns or palms and in the cup of different tropical plants. They have been never observed higher than 5 meters above the ground (Víquez, 1999).
