Type material.

HOLOTYPE: 1 ♀ (UMM464, AMNH) from 16 miles east of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, 29.0894 -110.6947 5, 371 m a.s.l., 20.viii.1960, coll. Zweifel et. al., AMNH.

Etymology.

The specific epithet is a noun taken in apposition and is in reference to the original Yaqui name for Hermosillo.

Diagnosis.

Ummidia pesiou   can be differentiated from all other geographically proximal species by having a well-developed rastellum with spines extending up the cheliceral face 3 ' the length of the rastellar process. Females can be differentiated from U. gabrieli   by having significantly more endite cuspules (59 vs 28) and from U. pustulosa   by having the sternum roughly as wide as long.
