Notes

Although subspecies are seldom used nowadays in arachnology to address taxonomical issues, the present batch of specimens fit perfectly the cited subspecies described by Millidge; in the same publication, he remarks that of all the subspecies treated in his work, this is the most likely to represent a separate species ( Millidge 1979). To properly assess this, a generic revision would be necessary. Therefore we keep a conservative approach in the identification of these specimens. See Species delimitation and identification using DNA barcodes.
