Corythalia lineata (♂) BAYER, 2020

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


Body: MarkingsOpistosoma with dark or bright spots . basic colouring dark. Carapace: ColourationLaterally without light bands. Chelicera: Base furrow teeth number promarginal2 teeth. Eyes: AERdorsal edge recurve. Labium: Lengthlonger than wide. Palp: GnathocoxaCorner present. Tibia - retrolateral tibial apophysis - characteristicsdorsal serration indistinct but present. base of RTA not or not distinctly wider than distal section. RTA in ventral view very slim. RTA long. RTA in retrolateral view with slight ventral orientation (less than 10° angle). RTA in retrolateral view without bent (or just indistinct bent). Tibia - ventral bump - sizevery short and indistinct. Tibia - ventral bump - characteristicsinconspicuous. Cymbium: Presence of prominent ridges or extensions ventrally absent. Tegulum: Widthtegulum as broad as cymbium. Shape of proximal halfproximal tegulum lobe present. proximal tegulum lobe as such absent. Proximal lobe - positionat retrolateral half of tegulum. Proximal lobe - size rel.medium-sized. Proximal lobe - shaperegularly rounded. Special structureswithout special structures. Sperm duct - locationoccupying clearly more than retrolateral half and at most 3/4. Sperm duct - shapedouble-stacked S-shaped, with proximal and distal loop equal in size. Embolus: Base positioncentro-distally (or even retrolatero-distally). Base circle sizelarge (width between 2/3 and 3/4 the width of tegulum). Arising point6 o´clock-position. Direction of distalmost sectionprolatero-distally (with between 11° and 50° angle from longitudinal axis of cymbium). width relation - at arising point - subdistallyfrom 4.1x to 7.5x broader. width relation - subdistally - centrallyat most 1/4 the width of central section. Shapecircular curved. bent counterclockwise. General structurewithout or with 1-3 (at most) longitudinal ridges. long. with more than 1/2 winding but less than 3/4 winding. without distinct embolic lamella over entire embolus length. without apophysis. in ventral view subdistally not narrower or narrower, but not distinctly narrower than proximally (more than 1/7 as broad. narrow to medium-sized and hose shaped. quite broad and hose-shaped. Special structuresickle-shaped. distally pointed. without apohysis (apophyses). Legs: Leg formula3-4-2-1. Colourationcompletely or mainly with dark colour (e.g. dark red-brown) ((hardly with lighter sections, e.g. only tarsi lighter). Opisthosoma: Colourationthree bands; AM broadest; AM & C narrower (C < 1/6 OL), without light small stacked chevrons betw. C & PM. Distribution: Geographical DistributionSouth America.
