Figs 86 View Figure 86 E–F, 87F

Textricella propinqua Forster, 1959: 285   , figs 26–27 (holotype male from Cass Riv- er, Canterbury, New Zealand, in Canterbury Museum, not examined). Brignoli, 1983: 375. Platnick, 2009.

Selected material examined. NEW ZEALAND: South Island: Canterbury: Broken River, 21.VI.1956, R. Forster, 4♀ ( MCZ).

Remarks. Rayforstia propinqua   is most similar to the other six-eyed species of Rayforstia   described from New Zealand ( R. plebeia   , R. salmoni   , R. scuta   and R. wisei   ), but can be distinguished by the distinctive shape of the external epigyne and the ‘peanutshaped’ spermathecae ( Figs 86F View Figure 86 , 87F View Figure 87 ).
