Type material. Female holotype from INDIA: Rajasthan: Jodhpur: Mandore (26°20’33.73’’N, 73°02’39.56’’E), 243 m alt.; R. C. Sharma leg.; 24 August 1963; repository NZC-ZSI, Kolkata (4648/18), examined. Female paratype and two male allotypes, with the same data as the holotype, examined GoogleMaps   .

Diagnosis. Evippa rajasthanea   seem closely similar to E. praelongipes   as both have a long median apophysis and epigynum with a long median septum, but can be distinguished from the latter by the following combination of features. Males: median apophysis with an apical retrolateral process and without any basal process (median apophysis of E. praelongipes   with an apical prolateral process and a spine-like baso-prolateral process), and tegulum lacks additional apical process (tegulum of E. praelongipes   with an additional long apico-retrolateral process near to median apophysis, compare Fig. 3B–C View FIGURE 3 with Alderweireldt, 1991: fig. 5.1–2). Females: epigynal median septum with short disto-lateral processes and W-shaped posterior margin (epigynal median septum of E. praelongipes   without short disto-lateral processes and with V-shaped posterior margin) and nearly globular spermathecae ( E. praelongipes   with nearly oval spermathecae, compare Fig. 3D, F View FIGURE 3 with Alderweireldt, 1991: fig. 5.4–5).

Description. For description of male and female, see Tikader & Malhotra (1980).

Remarks. The NZC-ZSI collection has three glass tubes for this species. A tube labeled as ‘holotype’ (4648/18) contains one female specimen in fairly good condition, with broken legs and intact genitalia. A second tube labeled as ‘paratype’ (4649/18) contains one female specimen in fairly good condition, with broken legs. The same tube has a small glass vial containing the dissected genitalia. A third tube labeled as ‘allotype’ (4650/18) contains two male specimens in fairly good condition, with broken legs. In the original description, single register number was assigned for both the holotype, the paratype and the allotypes ( Tikader & Malhotra 1980). However, the labels in the type tubes mention separate registration numbers.
