Decaphora ambigua ( Caporiacco, 1938 )
status

comb. nov.

Decaphora ambigua ( Caporiacco, 1938)  comb. nov.

Pseudosparianthis ambiguus Caporiacco, 1938: 269  (Holotype immature female from Guatemala, Izabal, Puerto Barrios   GoogleMaps [15.7278, -88.5944], A. Taibel leg., MZUB, not examined).

Note. Decaphora ambigua  comb. nov. is known solely from a juvenile specimen. Nevertheless, the original description mentions characters that are congruent with those of Decaphora  , especially the presence of six small teeth on the retromargin of the chelicerae. All other Neotropical Sparianthinae  genera have only two small teeth on the retromargin. In addition, the type locality of D. ambigua  falls within the distribution range of Decaphora  , known from southern Florida to Costa Rica, with one species occurring in western Colombia.
