Prosoma dark brown, anterior part distinctly narrower. Sternum medium brown. Legs light to medium brown, with darker annulations. Opisthosoma egg-shaped, dorsum dark grey-brown with more or less distinct light transverse bands, venter distinctly lighter.
The male from Turkey of C. brignolii (see Thaler 1980b) belongs to C. thaleri Wunderlich (1995h). But Wunderlich does not mention the females of C. pirini by Brignoli (1978a), which belong to C. brignolii per Thaler (1980b). Thus C. pirini sensu Brignoli (1978a) can probably be the unknown female of C. thaleri.
