Corythalia cincta (♂) (BADCOCK, 1932)

In addition to the genus diagnosis, the following features characterize the species:


Body: MarkingsOpistosoma with dark or bright spots . basic colouring dark. Eyes: AERdorsal edge recurve. Labium: Lengthlonger than wide. Palp: Tibia - retrolateral tibial apophysis - characteristicsdorsal serration distinct. base of RTA not or not distinctly wider than distal section. RTA in ventral view medium-sized in width (between 3x longer than broad and 4.5x). RTA medium-sized in length. RTA in retrolateral view more or less parallel with longitudinal axis of palp. RTA in retrolateral view without bent (or just indistinct bent). Tibia - ventral bump - sizemedium-sized (as long or about as long as width of sperm duct). Tibia - ventral bump - characteristicsmoderately conspicuous. Cymbium: Presence of prominent ridges or extensions ventrally absent. Tegulum: Widthtegulum broader than cymbium (even though minimally broader). Shape of proximal halfproximal tegulum lobe present. proximal tegulum lobe as such absent. Proximal lobe - positionat retrolateral half of tegulum. Proximal lobe - size rel.relatively narrow. medium-sized. Proximal lobe - shaperegularly rounded. Special structureswith (fine) transversal ridge (often at distal half at the area of the border between embolic division and tegulum). Sperm duct - locationoccupying more than retrolateral 3/4 of tegulum. Sperm duct - shapedouble-stacked S-shaped, with proximal and distal loop equal in size. Embolus: Base positionin prolateral half (or, depending on the size, prolateral 2/3, 3/4, etc.) of tegulum, but not reaching the prolateral margin; at distal section. Base circle sizemedium-sized. Base - special structureswith some thorn- or tooth-like extensions prolatero-distally (sometimes not distinctly extending but always recognisable as such). Arising point7 o´clock-position. 8 o´clock-position. 9 o´clock-position. width relation - at arising point - subdistallyfrom 2.6x to 4x broader. width relation - subdistally - centrallyfrom > 1/4 to < 1/2 the width of central section. from > 3/4 to < 1x the width of central section. General structurewith more than 3 longitudinal ridges. without or with 1-3 (at most) longitudinal ridges. medium-sized, between 1/2 and 1x the width of tegulum. long. with more than 1/2 winding but less than 3/4 winding. without distinct embolic lamella over entire embolus length. with apophysis. in ventral view subdistally not narrower or narrower, but not distinctly narrower than proximally (more than 1/7 as broad. quite broad and hose-shaped. Special structuredistally regularly bifurcated. subdistally broadened. distally truncated. with one apohysis. Legs: Leg formula3-4-1-2. 3-4-2-1. 4-3-1-2. 4-3-2-1. Colourationdark red-brown or brown with few lighter annulations, mainly at proximal articles and tarsi. Opisthosoma: Colourationthree bands; AM broadest; C second broadest, with dark chevron; PM narrowest. Distribution: Geographical DistributionSouth America.
