Textricella salmoni Forster, 1959: 290   , figs 38–45 (holotype male from Desert Road, Waiouru, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand, in MNZ, not examined). Brignoli, 1983: 375. Platnick, 2009.

Type material: Paratypes: 9 males and 10 females, Desert Road, Waiouru, Manawatu- Wanganui, New Zealand, 24.III.1948, R. Forster ( AMNH).

Selected material examined. NEW ZEALAND: North Island: Manawatu-   Wanganui: Desert Road, Waiouru, 10.I.1967, R. Forster, 1♁, 2♀ ( AMNH)   ; same data except 28.IV.1946, J. Salmon, 3♁, 1♀ ( MCZ)   .

Remarks. Rayforstia salmoni   is a distinctive species from the North Island of New Zealand. It is most similar to the other six-eyed species of Rayforstia   de-

scribed from New Zealand ( R. plebeia   , R. propinqua   , R. scuta   and R. wisei   ), but can be distinguished by the distinctive shape of the external epigyne and receptacula ( Figs 86G View Figure 86 , 87G View Figure 87 ).
