Both males and females typically have a thin band of white scales along the lower edge of the carapace on the sides, unlike Z. rufipes. Males have a black carapace and a spot of white scales at beginning of thoracic slope (where the top of the carapace begins to slope down to the abdomen), although it is sometimes rubbed off.
Mostly found in the Southeastern states. Range extends west to Texas and north to New York.
