Pardosa alboannulata Yin et al., 1997: 273  , fig. 129a–d (male holotype from Tiantong Mountain Nature Reserve, Ningbo City, Zhejiang Prov., China, deposited in Hunan Normal University of China, unexamined); Song et al. 1999: 329, fig. 192Q (male).

Material examined. Topotypes: China, 5 males, Zhejiang Province, Ningbo City, Mt. Tiantong , 29°47′55′′N, 121°47′33′′E, 136 m, 13 May 2016, T. Lu leg. ( SWUC)GoogleMaps  . China, 3 males, Chongqing Municipality, Mt. Jinyun, Yunhe Administrative Station , 29°50′30′′ N, 106°21′30′′E, 248 m, 21 June 2008, L.Y. Wang leg. ( SWUC)GoogleMaps  ; 2 males, Yunhe Administrative Station , 31 May 2014, X.W. Meng, T. Lu & J. Yang leg. ( SWUC)  .

Remarks. Although we could not examine the holotype, we recognize this species from specimens collected from the type locality, which perfectly match the original description and illustration.

Diagnosis. The males of Ovia alboannulata  can be recognized in the field by the white rings on the femora and tibiae II–IV. They can be easily distinguished from O. procurva  ( Figs 6View FIGURE 6 A–D, 9A–D, 12A–B) by a single, relatively slender apical claw on cymbium and the tip of terminal apophysis hiding behind the membranous, truncated tegular lobe in ventral view.

Description. Male. The general description and measurements of the male are given in Yin et al., 1997. Male pedipalp ( Figs 1BView FIGURE 1, 4View FIGURE 4, 7View FIGURE 7): cymbium with a single, long apical claw. Palea slightly sclerotized, with a strongly hooked terminal apophysis. Embolus filiform and prolaterally originated, extending ventro-retrolaterally. A square membranous tegular lobe protecting the embolus and shielding the tip of terminal apophysis ventrally. Median apophysis transverse, with a ventrally directed spur and a prolateral hyperplasia.

Female. unknown.
