Diagnosis

Males of Idiops germaini differ from those of other Neotropical species of Idiops by the long and slender palpal tibia, with the retrolateral depression restricted to the apical portion ( Figs 18C View Fig , 19D View Fig ), and by having the tibial apophysis reduced to two long spines inserted on a low tubercle ( Figs 18G–I View Fig , 19C View Fig ). Females with spermathecae composed of short ducts and fully sclerotized receptacles, almost twice the diameter of the duct ( Fig. 18L View Fig ).
