Selenops ducke Corronca, 1996  

( Figures 2 View Figure 2 (k–l, m–p), 3(f–h), 5(d–e) and 6(f–g), Map 1)

Selenops ducke Corronca, 1996: 68   , f. 1–5.

Selenops ducke Corronca, 1998: 132   , f. 8–12.

Type material. Holotype. male, Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke, 4.I.1993, H Höfer and T Gasnier ( MCN 25527 View Materials , examined via photograph)   . Paratype: Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke, 17–24.VIII   .1991, A. Brescovit ( MCN 21487 View Materials examined via photograph)   .

Diagnosis. Males of S. ducke   can be separated from other members of the S. banksi   group by having the embolar process and embolus connected by a thin, weakly sclerotised area throughout their length. Females of S. ducke   can be separated from S. micropalpus   and S. banksi   by having the epigynal plate of similar length and width, and from S. curruganja   sp. nov. by lacking an arc-shaped median lobe of the epigyne.

Distribution. Only known from the type locality of Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke, Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil.

Life history and habitat preferences. Collected on tree trunks at night.

Remarks. In Corronca (1996), the male holotype and female paratype are indicated to have been collected at the same time (17–24.VIII.1991) by A. Brescovit. However, the data provided by the MCN indicate that the female paratype was collected by the aforementioned during the dates given, and the male holotype was collected 4.I.1993 at Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke by H. Höfer and T. Gasnier. In Corronca (1998), there is no mention of a collector, but the 1991 collection of only the paratype has been confirmed by the collector; thus, the holotype was collected in 1993.
