Macrophyes O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1893

Macrophyes O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1893:106 , 107, type species: M. attenuata O. Pickard Cambridge, 1893:107 ; Brescovit 1992: 102; Brescovit 1997: 62.

Diagnosis. Macrophyes species resemble those of Mesilla by having elongated and thin body; long and thin legs; median apophysis on anterior side of the tegulum and a large retromarginal tooth on distal side of chelicerae, but can been distinguished by the laminar ventral tegular projection; a short embolus basally inserted on the tegulum ( Brescovit 1992: 105, figs 1−3, 6−11; 1993: 116, figs 1, 2; Figs 1 View FIGURE C−E). Females are characterized by their thin copulatory ducts, anteriorly curved and with small seminal receptacles on medial region; laminar and convergent lateral borders, forming a median, longer than wide atrium, and copulatory openings in anterior position ( Brescovit 1992: 105, figs 4, 5; 1993: 116, figs 3−6; Figs 1F, G View FIGURE ).
