Ummidia zilchi   Kraus, 1955b: 7; Type Material. HOLOTYPE 1♂ (8569_1) from San Salvador, El Salvador, 13.6921 -89.219 6, 700 m a.s.l., A. Zilch, 5.viii.1957, deposited in Senckenberg Museum, examined. Three paratypes (8568, 8570, 8571) associated with specimen. Specimens 8570 and 8571 are immatures and 8568 is misidentified (see Ummidia hondurena   sp. nov.)

Ummidia zilchi   Bücherl, 1957: 382.

Diagnosis.

Ummidia zilchi   males can be distinguished from all geographically proximate species except U. huascazaloya   by the palpal tibia being elongate (3.5 ×long as wide) and a relatively short embolus (half the length of the palpal tibia) with an even curve. Males can be differentiated from all geographically proximate species except U. zebrina   and U. carlosviquezi   by having a defined comb of spinules on the retrolateral face of tarsus IV. Males can be further differentiated from U. huascazaloya   , U. anaya   , U. cuicatec   , U. brandicarlileae   , U. zebrina   , U. yojoa   , and U. varablanca   by having relatively more spines on the prolateral (19 vs 0-11) and retrolateral (36 vs 1-17) faces of tibia I.
