Apopyllus now Platnick & Shadab, 1984: 7  , figs 19–22. Male holotype and female paratype from the south slope of Veeris Berg, Curaçao (12º10’7”N, 68º59’25”W), 20.XII.1962, H.W. Levi coll., deposited in MCZ (examined).

Diagnosis. Females can be distinguished by the anterior ridge arched and thick on the sides ( Figs 10View FIGURE 10 E, 11E). Males can be diagnosed by the retrolateral cymbial projection shorter than the RTA in dorsal and ventral view, by the shorter embolus, with a more distally situated embolus loop, and by the shape of the robust RTA ( Figs 3View FIGURE 3 C, 4C, 5C, 6C, 7C, 8C).

Description. See Platnick & Shadab (1984).

Material examined. Only the holotype and paratype.

Distribution. Known only from the type locality, Curaçao ( Fig. 14View FIGURE 14 A).
