Material examined.

United States - Virginia • 1 ♂; Henry County, Ridgeway ; 36.5766°N, - 79.8586°W; 27 Nov. 1961; R. Hoffman leg.; VMNH NAN0269. For detailed collection data see Suppl. material 7 GoogleMaps   .

Hypothesized placement.

Nannaria   “Ridgeway” specimens are hypothesized to be closely related to Nannaria   "Moores Springs" based on close geographic proximity and the following combination of gonopodal characters. Acropodite simple, directed medially. Telopodite basal zone with raised ridge (Fig. 124A View Figure 124 , red arrow). Prefemoral spine pronounced and claw-like (Fig. 124B View Figure 124 , red triangle). Nannaria   “Ridgeway” specimens differ from "Moores Springs" based on the following combination of gonopodal characters: Prefemoral process small, curving ventrolaterally, not long, nearly straight as in "Moores Springs." Acropodite with slight medial swelling (Fig. 124A View Figure 124 , red oval), lacking in "Moores Springs."
