Cinetomorpha silvestris Simon, 1893b: 443   (Three female syntypes from San Esteban, Venezuela, deposited in MNHN AR 5717, PBI_ OON 05496 View Materials , examined).

Diagnosis. Females of this species resembles those of C. chicote   sp. nov. by the shape of the internal female genitalia bearing large rounded receptaculum and straight ectal portions of lateral apodems, almost aligning perpendicularly with the longitudinal plan of the body ( Figs 9I View FIGURES 9 , 19I View FIGURES 19 ); can be distinguished from the last by the less pronounced anterior portion of sclerotized wall.

Description. Male. Unknown.

Female ( PBI _ OON 05496 View Materials ). Total length: 1.84. CEPHALOTHORAX: Carapace orange-brown, broadly oval in dorsal view, pars cephalica slightly elevated in lateral view, surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica granulate, sides granulate; lateral margin without denticles. Clypeus curved downwards in front view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more. Chilum less than ALE diameter. Eyes relatively large, all subequal; ALE separated by more than their diameter, PLE-PME separated by less than PME radius. Sternum orange-brown, fused to carapace, furrow with rows of small pits, surface finely punctuate, microsculpture medially and in furrows, posterior margin not extending posteriorly of coxae IV, setae originating from surface. Mouthparts: Chelicerae, endites and labium orange-brown. paturon inner margin with short inter-digitating setae. Labium anterior margin indented at middle. ABDOMEN: rounded posteriorly; dorsum soft portions pale white. Pedicel scuto-pedicel region unmodified, plumose setae absent. Dorsal scutum orange-brown, middle surface reticulate, sides reticulate. Postepigastric scutum orange-brown, almost semicircular. Spinneret scutum large. LEGS: orange-brown.
