Antrops mucarensis View in CoL sp. nov.

( Figs. 109–113 View FIGURES 109–118 , 217 View FIGURES 213–221 )

Description. As described for A. orbitalis . Acrostichal setae in 2 rows with an additional pair at posterior margin of scutum. Abdominal tergite 3 with microtomentum restricted to base.

Male postabdomen: Sternite 5 as described for the species group. Surstylus with medial ridge broad, strongly projecting, anteroventral corner slightly broader than right-angled, ventral tooth broad, rounded apically ( Fig. 110 View FIGURES 109–118 ). Pregonite indistinct, fully fused with postgonite. Postgonite with lobes barely separated, anterior lobe very short, quadrate, posterior lobe pointed, long. Basiphallus narrow, with long epiphallus and preepiphallus, preepiphallus mostly transparent, sclerotized along posterior edge only. Distiphallus with broad, flattened, spinose dorsal knob ( Fig. 109 View FIGURES 109–118 ).

Female postabdomen: Tergites 6–7 and sternites 6–7 wider than long, moderately sclerotized, covered with microtomentum. Tergites with 3 posterior strips, sternites with 2 posterior strips. Tergite 8 shiny, widest anteriorly. In only available female, lateral edges of tergite 8 are folded around abdomen and lie next to sternite 8, and folded portion is concave ( Fig. 112 View FIGURES 109–118 ). It is unclear whether this is the normal state or if this is a drying artifact. Epiproct with moderately long anterior arms, shiny, with 2 pairs of setae ( Fig. 111 View FIGURES 109–118 ). Cerci narrow. Sclerites of sternite 8 narrow, parallel-sided for most of length, strongly pinched near base, distal third with microtomentum, apices bilobed, sharply pointed, without hooks. Hypoproct depressed antero-medially ( Fig. 112 View FIGURES 109–118 ). Spermathecae round, apical invagination not meeting basal invagination, sclerotized duct about as long as spermatheca ( Fig. 113 View FIGURES 109–118 ).

Type material. Holotype ♂: CHILE: Antofagasta: Mucar, on Argentina border, 23°20'S, 4000–4100 m, 12– 16 Dec 1965, L. Peña, debu01033740 ( CNCI) . Paratype: same data as holotype (1 ♀, CNCI) .
