Remarks. Detailed descriptions of the types can be found in Koch (1879) and in Żabka (1987). The syntypes are part of the collection in ZMUH and can no longer be borrowed, making work on this very extensive collection of Australian types difficult for Australian workers. Fortunately, Prof. M. Żabka has seen and drawn one of the male syntypes and kindly made his original illustrations available (Żabka pers. com.). As there is no confusion as to the specific identification of the syntypes and they have not been seen, no lectotype has been designated.

Material examined. Syntype. Drawings provided by M. Żabka: F, Sydney 151.22 °E, 33.88 °S ( ZMUH MG 16534).

Diagnosis: The females ( Figs 163–165View FIGURES 158 – 166) can be separated from P. semiatra L. Koch  ( Figs 193–197View FIGURES 190 – 198) by the distal rather than lateral direction taken by the insemination ducts and the possession of large rather than small atria. It can be separated from P. plurilineata  sp. nov. ( Figs 178– 180View FIGURES 175 – 181) by the much smaller fertilization ducts in P.

albobarbata  and the long lateral rather than shorter median guides. The males can be separated from the other two species by the shapes and sizes of the proximal lobes on the tegula and the different shapes of the tibial apophyses and emboli.

Description. Male: Cephalothorax ( Figs 150, 151View FIGURES 150 – 157) rounded and shallow with orange-brown dorsal surface grading to black on all the margins. Surrounds of ALE, PME and PLE black. Pars cephalica flat. White hairs scattered over the cephalothorax, forming white striae on the posterior face of the pars thoracica. Clypeus ( Figs 153, 154View FIGURES 150 – 157) orange-brown, narrow, with white fringe of short hairs. Chelicerae short and broad, with one, very small, promarginal tooth and a single, small, unident, retromarginal tooth. Endites, and labium brown grading to yellow distally. Sternum brown. Abdomen ovate. Dorsal abdomen light brown with a dark brown distinct pattern ( Fig. 150View FIGURES 150 – 157). Spinnerets light brown. Ventral abdomen mid brown with four longitudinal, light brown stripes. Palps and legs brown, grading to light brown distally. Legs of similar length though grading from L 1 to L 4 in robustness. Palp ( Figs 158–162View FIGURES 158 – 166): Tibial apophysis single short, tapering with distinct shoulder and hooked end. Tegulum light brown, relatively broad and round, grossly extended ventrally. A tiny laterally-bent, proximal lobe is present. Embolus rises from a broad base, long, slightly curved in an anticlockwise direction. Dimensions: General: CL 1.86 EFL 0.80 CW 1.55 AEW 1.24 AMEW 0.80 PEW 1.36 AL 1.86, P 1 +T 1 1.36 L 1 3.28 (1.05 + 0.62 + 0.74 + 0.50 + 0.37), L 2 2.79 (0.93 + 0.56 + 0.56 + 0.43 + 0.31), L 3 2.51 (0.87 + 0.34 + 0.43 + 0.43 + 0.43), L 4 3.03 (0.99 + 0.50 + 0.68 + 0.50 + 0.37).

Female: As for the male ( Figs 154–157View FIGURES 150 – 157), but larger, and the clypeus with only a sparse white fringe of short hairs. Legs grading from L 1 to L 4 in robustness. Epigyne ( Figs 163–165View FIGURES 158 – 166): consisting of a pair of inwardly facing C-shaped atria with sclerotised margins. Copulatory openings indistinct but at the anterior end of the atria. Insemination ducts pass posteriorly, joining the spermatheca on the anterior edge. Spermatheca simple, lying behind the atria. Fertilization duct very short on the median edge of the spermatheca. Median pouch in the epigastric fold. Dimensions: CL 2.17 EFL 0.80 CW 1.80 AEW 1.42 AMEW 0.93 PEW 1.55 AL 2.41, P 1 +T 1 1.49 L 1 3.41 (1.18 + 0.56 + 0.87 + 0.43 + 0.37), L 2 3.03 (0.99 + 0.62 + 0.62 + 0.43 + 0.37), L 3 3.10 (1.05 + 0.56 + 0.50 + 0.56 + 0.43), L 4 3.84 (1.24 + 0.62 + 0.74 + 0.74 + 0.50).

Distribution and biology. Found in litter in the forests and woodlands of NSW and Queensland. Predicted to be also found in Victoria and South Australia ( Fig. 166View FIGURES 158 – 166). Common and widespread in a range of habitats, accordingly, its IUCN status would be LC.
