Taxonomy

The genus and species were first described in 2001 by Christa L. Deeleman-Reinhold. The generic name "Olin" was a random combination of letters, and the specific name "platnicki" is in honour of Norman Platnick.

Characteristics

Olin has long and projected chelicerae, and a relatively broad and low carapace, with the maxillae long and nearly parallel, with depressions laterally. There is little sexual dimorphism and no elongation on the fourth trochanter or coxae.
