Figures 307–312

Oonops chilapensis Chamberlin and Ivie, 1936: 8   , figs. 1, 2 (male holotype from Chilapa , Guerrero, Mexico, in AMNH; examined).

Diagnosis: Males can be recognized by the wide embolar base, which is abruptly narrowed at about one-fifth the embolar length (figs. 307–309).

MALE (PBI_OON 1640, figs. 307–312): Total length 1.91. Eyes teratological, with left anterior and left posterior lateral far removed from other four eyes. Anterior portion of endites with single short, blunt process situated almost at tip of endite; serrula present. Leg spination: tibiae: III p1-0-1, v1p-0-2; IV p1-0-0, v2-0-2, r1-0-0; metatarsi: III v0-0-1p, r1-0-0; IV p1-0-0, v0-1p-1p, r1-0-0. Embolus wide at base, abruptly narrowed at about one-fifth its length.

FEMALE: Unknown

MATERIAL EXAMINED: MEXICO: Guerrero: Chilapa , 1935 ( AMNH PBI_OON 1640), 1♂ (holotype)   .

DISTRIBUTION: Guerrero.

Noonops iviei   , new species

Figures 313–323

TYPE: Male holotype taken 12 miles east of Manzanillo, 19°01′N, 104°10′W, Colima, Mexico (May 11, 1963; W. Gertsch, W. Ivie), deposited in AMNH (PBI_OON 1470) GoogleMaps   .

ETYMOLOGY: The specific name is a patronym in honor of Wilton Ivie, one of the collectors of the type and many other oonopids.

DIAGNOSIS: Males resemble those of N. puebla   but have a smaller embolar base and an embolus that is straight for most of its length (figs. 313–318); the endites have a distinctive lateral projection (figs. 322, 323).

MALE (PBI_OON 1470, figs. 313–323): Total length 1.03. Anterior portion of endites with two processes, each highly modified; one process projects far beyond lateral edge of endite, other process with greatly enlarged base; serrula absent. Leg spination: tibiae: III v0-0-2; IV v0-0-1p; metatarsi: III v0-0-1p; IV v0-1p-0. Embolus sharply bent at base, then straight for remainder of length, tip sharply pointed.

FEMALE: Unknown.

OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED: MEXICO: Jalisco: El Tecuán road, km 5.7 from Ruta 200, Municipio La Huerta , 19°19.61′N, 104°54.71′W, Sept. 12, 1999, Berlese, leaf and log litter, tropical subdeciduous forest in ravine, elev. 40 m (A. Newton, M. Thayer, FMNH 56286 View Materials , PBI_ OON 10725 View Materials ), 1♂ GoogleMaps   .

DISTRIBUTION: Jalisco and Colima.

Noonops tonila   , new species

Figures 324–335

TYPES: Male holotype, female allotype, and three male paratypes taken 2 miles south of Tonila, Colima, Mexico (Aug. 28, 1965; W. Gertsch, Hastings), deposited in AMNH (PBI_ OON 31158 View Materials )   .

ETYMOLOGY: The specific name is a noun in apposition taken from the type locality.

DIAGNOSIS: Males resemble those of N. minutus   but have a greatly elongated spur on the base of the embolus (figs. 324–326, 330–332); females also resemble those of N. minutus   but have a narrower posterior receptaculum (figs. 334, 335).

MALE (PBI_ OON 31158 View Materials , figs. 324–332): Total length 0.84. Anterior portion of endites with single, ventrally directed process; serrula absent. Leg spination: femur: IV d1-0-0; tibiae: III p0-1-0, v0-0-2, r0-1-0; IV p1-0-0, v0-0-2; metatarsi: III v0-0-1p; IV p0-0-1, v0-0-2, r0-0-1. Spur at base of embolus greatly elongated.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 31158 View Materials , figs. 333–335): Total length 1.04. Leg spination (leg IV missing): tibia III v0-0-2; metatarsus III v0-0- 1p. Anterior receptaculum elongated; median sclerotization rounded.

OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED: MEXICO: Colima: 10 mi S Colima , Aug. 1, 1954 (W. Gertsch, AMNH PBI_ OON 31152 View Materials ), 1♂   . Michoacán: Zamora , Aug. 1, 1956 (W. Gertsch, V. Roth, AMNH PBI_ OON 31148 View Materials ), 1♂   .

DISTRIBUTION: Colima and Michoacán.

Noonops minutus   , new species

Figures 336–346

TYPES: Male holotype and female allotype taken 12 mi S of Cuernavaca, 18°45′N, 99°15′W, Morelos, Mexico (May 3, 1963; W. Gertsch, W. Ivie), deposited in AMNH (PBI_ OON 37317 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   .

ETYMOLOGY: The specific name refers to the remarkably small size of this species.

DIAGNOSIS: Males of this minute species can be recognized by their distinctively shaped embolus (figs. 336–340), females by the rounded anterior receptaculum and rounded median sclerotization (figs. 345, 346).

MALE (PBI_OON 1827, figs. 336–343): Total length 0.84. Anterior portion of endites with two processes, anterior process lobe-shaped, posterior process pointed, directed medially; serrula absent. Leg spination: tibiae: III p0-0-1, r0-0-1; IV v0-0-1r, r0-1-0; metatarsi: III v0-0-2; IV p1-0-1, v0-0-2, r1-0-1. Embolus evenly curved, tip with blunt ventral extension.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 37317 View Materials , figs. 344–346): Total length 1.06. Leg spination: tibiae III, IV v0-0-1p; metatarsi: III v0-0-2; IV p1-0-1, v0-0-1p, r1-0-0. Anterior receptaculum rounded; posterior receptaculum with rounded anterior sclerotization.

OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED: MEXICO: Morelos: 12 mi S Cuernavaca , 18°45′N, 99°15′W, May 3, 1963 (W. Gertsch, W. Ivie, AMNH PBI_OON 1827), 2♂, 1♀ GoogleMaps   .
