Synonymies. - A. vulpes Bertkau   is considered a junior subjective synonym of Dolomedes concolor Perty   , 1833. Specimens from the type locality (Barbacena) were examined and considered identical to the original description of A. vulpes   . In cases where the type could not be examined a new synonymy is based on available figures ( Ctenus argentinus, C. originalis, C. iophorus   , Corinoctenus greenwayi   ) or descriptions ( Cupiennius diplocellatus   ).

Diagnosis. - Male. Palp with median apophysis straight and broad, and relatively short. Membranous lobe on base of embolus semicircular to rectangular, not covering the base of the median apophysis (Fig. 5, 28). Female.

Description. - Male (SMNK 1448). Prosoma dorsally dark brown with median band of yellow hairs and broad marginal bands of white hairs, both linked by diverging white stripes.

Ventral parts of body generally lighter, abdomen more reddish. Chelicerae with 3 unequal promarginal and 4 subequal retromarginal teeth.

Palp. Tibia with curved ventral and black lateral apophysis. Embolus broad at base flanked by rounded membranous lobe and describing semicircle, ending filiform beneath apex of cymbium, median part embedded in winglike conductor (Fig. 5, 28).
