Oonops furtivus Gertsch, 1936: 6   , figs. 19–21 (male holotype from Edinburg, Hidalgo Co., Texas, in AMNH; examined). – Gertsch and Davis, 1942: 3.

DIAGNOSIS: Males resemble those of N. willisi   but the palpal bulb is smaller and the opening of the embolus is oriented transversely (figs. 97–105); females have a rounded anterior receptaculum and posterior wide ducts (figs. 109, 110). Males and females have not been collected together, and could be mismatched.

MALE (PBI_ OON 49939 View Materials , figs. 97–107): Total length 1.39. Anterior portion of endites without processes; serrula present. Leg spination: tibiae: III d1-0-0, p0-0-1, v1p-1p-2, r0-1-1; IV d1-0-0, p1-0-1, v1p-0-2, r0-0-1; metatarsi: III v1p-1p-0, r0-1-0; IV d1-0-0, p0-2-1, v1p-0-2, r1-0-2. Embolus distally widened, with apical protrusion.

FEMALE (PBI_OON 1593, figs. 108–110): Total length 1.61. Leg spination: tibiae: III p0-1- 1, v0-0-2; IV p0-1-0, v1p-1p-2, r1-1-1; metatarsi: III v1p-0-0, r0-0-1; IV p1-1-0, v1p-0-2, r0-1- 0. Anterior receptaculum rounded; posterior receptaculum with wide ducts.

Noonops ocotillo   , new species

Figures 111–137

TYPE: Female holotype from Ocotillo, Maricopa County   , Arizona (Apr. 26, 1961; W. Gertsch), deposited in AMNH (PBI_OON 1060)   .

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

DIAGNOSIS: Males have a long, narrow embolus, with a basal projection and the apical portion sharply bent (figs. 111–118, 120–124); females resemble those of N. tarantula   in having the anterior portion of the genitalia arched, but have the posterior elements much more elaborated, with a pair of distinct lobes (figs. 126–137).

MALE (PBI_OON 2938, figs. 111–125): Total length 1.28. Anterior portion of endites with two processes, both pointed, directed posteriorly; serrula absent.

Embolus with long, narrow basal projection; apical portion abruptly narrowed, bent; tip broad.

FEMALE (PBI_OON 1060, figs. 126–137): Total length 1.44. Leg spination: tibiae: III p1-0- 1, v0-1p-2, r0-0-1; IV p1-0-0, v0-1p-2, r1-0-0; metatarsi: III v1p-0-0; IV p0-0-1, v0-1p-0. Anterior receptaculum triangular; posterior receptaculum with pair of anterior lobes.
