status

COMB. NOV.

CHROSIOTHES EPISINOIDES ( LEVI, 1963)   , COMB. NOV.

Synonymy:

Anelosimus episinoides Levi, 1963: 40   , figs 20–24, ♂ ♀

Types: Male holotype from Chile, Lineres , Fundo Malcho, Cord., Parral, ii.1958, in KBIN, examined   .

Comments: The affinities of this species are not clear, but it most closely resembles species of the genus Chrosiothes   (see Levi, 1964b), where it also keys out in the key of Agnarsson (2003a). The triangular-shaped, humpy, abdomen overhanging spinnerets, dark dorsal band on carapace and conformation of palp and epigynum all indicate affinity with Chrosiothes   ( Levi, 1963: figs 20–24). It differs from Anelosimus   by abdomen shape and coloration, prosoma shape and coloration, and labium without a seam.
