Diagnosis. Males of Patrera barbacoas   n. sp. resemble those of P. platnicki   n. sp. by having the abdomen with several dark patches and subquadrate retrolateral tibial apophysis ( Fig. 10B View FIGURE 10 ̅D), but can be distinguished by the retrolateral tibial apophysis narrower (larger and wider in P. platnicki   ) and apically subrounded, and embolus inserted on the base of the tegulum (inserted near the middle of tegulum in P. platnicki   ) ( Fig. 5B View FIGURE 5 ̅D).
