Uroplectes vittatus ( Thorell, 1876)  

Lepreus vittatus Thorell, 1876: 121–122   .

Uroplectes jutrzenkai Penther, 1900: 157–158   (synonymized by Hewitt, 1918: 122; also see Newlands, 1970: 202).

Uroplectes chubbi briodi Schenkel, 1932: 386–387   , new synonym.

TYPE MATERIAL: Uroplectes chubbi briodi Schenkel, 1932   : lectotype ♂ [designated by Forcart, 1961: 49], 2 ♀ paralectotypes ( NMB 78-I-a), ZAMBIA: Western Province: Sefula [15°17′S 23°09′E]. Uroplectes jutrzenkai Penther, 1900   : lectotype ♂ [here designated], 1 ♂, 2 ♀ paralectotypes ( NHMW 2342), SOUTH AFRICA: eastern Transvaal, R. Jutrzenka.

ADDITIONAL MATERIAL: BOTSWANA: Central District: Bobonong Subdistrict   : Limpopo Lodge, 5.4 km SW turnoff to Platjan on Martin’s Drift / Baines Drift–Pont Drift road, 22°27′01.5″S 28°46′10.8″E, 700 m, 21–22.ii.2011, L. Prendini and P. Gildenhuys, 1 ♂ ( AMNH) GoogleMaps   . SOUTH AFRICA: Limpopo Province: Soutpansberg District: Farm Gansvley 335, 15 km S Alldays intersection Waterhout and Withaak streets, 22°48′37.2″S 29°05′21.5″E, 802 m, 22.ii.2011, L. Prendini and P. Gildenhuys, 1 ♂, 4 ♀, 1 subad. ♂, 1 subad. ♀ ( AMNH) GoogleMaps   . Warmbad District: Rust de Winter Dam Nature Reserve , camping area on N side of dam, 25°13′30.4″S 28°29′36.3″E, 1046 m, 3.i.2013, L. Prendini and M.I.

Nyathi, and N. Scott, 13 ♂, 17 ♀, 2 juv. ♂, 2 juv. ♀ ( AMNH) GoogleMaps   .

REMARKS: The type material of U. chubbi briodi   and U. jutrzenkai   was found to be morphologically indistinguishable and therefore conspecific with nontype material of U. vittatus   from across the known distribution of the species, on the basis of which the former is newly synonymized, and the synonymy of the latter, by Hewitt (1918) and Newlands (1970), confirmed: Uroplectes chubbi briodi Schenkel, 1932   = Uroplectes vittatus ( Thorell, 1876)   , new synonym; Uroplectes jutrzenkai Penther, 1900   = Uroplectes vittatus ( Thorell, 1876)   .
