THE RUPUNUNI   GROUP – CLADE 28

The rupununi   group contains only two species, the very similar A. rupununi   and A. lorenzo   , both social. The species have unusual genitalia in comparison with other Anelosimus   (see e.g. Fig. 56F View Figure 56 ). Synapomorphies supporting the group include: loss of epigynal ridges (4 -1), medially acute copulatory bursa margin (6 -1), copulatory ducts attaching posteriorly to spermathecae (7 -0), broad cymbial hood (24 -1), branched MA (47 -1) and folded embolus rim (66 -1, Fig. 56F View Figure 56 ). The rupununi   group is one of the three isolated clades containing American Anelosimus   ; it was revised by Agnarsson (2005).
