Cyclosa sp. cf. cucurbitoria  (Yin, Wang, Xie & Peng 1990)

Material examined. 2 females ( SMF 56318), L29, by hand, P. Jäger 18- 19.11.2003GoogleMaps  .

According to the present material the female epigynum seems to have a strong variation in the shape of the epigynal plate. Only one female fits the illustration shown in Yin et al. (1997: fig. 144 d). The other epigynum exhibits a roughly triangular rather than a distinctly waisted plate. However, shape of opisthosoma and arrangements of posterior humps coincide with the illustrations of Yin et al. (1997). Males and further material should be included in a revision concerning the variation within this species.
