Figs 86 View Figure 86 C–D, 87D

Textricella antipoda Forster, 1959: 288   , figs 33–34 (holotype male from Meads Landing, Lake Hawea, Otago, New Zealand, in Canterbury Museum, not examined). Brignoli, 1983: 375. Platnick, 2009.

Selected material examined. NEW ZEALAND: South Island: Otago: Meads Landing, Lake Hawea , 20.I.1951, R. Forster, 1♁, 1♀ ( AMNH)   ; Kidds Bush, Lake Hawea , 9.IV.1979, R. Forster, 6♁, 11♀ ( AMNH)   .

Remarks. Rayforstia antipoda   is most similar to the other eight-eyed species of Rayforstia   described from New Zealand ( R. insula   , R. mcfarlanei   , R. signata   and R. vulgaris   ), but can be distinguished by the distinctive shape of the external epigyne and the L-shaped receptacula ( Figs 86D View Figure 86 , 87D View Figure 87 ).
