Reductoonops napo   , new species ( figs. 453–468 View FIGURES 452–463. 452 View FIGURES 464–473. 464–468 )

TYPE: Male holotype taken at an elevation of 1005 m in the Parque Nacional Napo-Galeras , 00°44′00″S, 77°28′07″W, Napo, Ecuador (Nov. 27, 2009; Niarchos Exped.   ), deposited in QCAZ (PBI_ OON 51323 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   .

DIAGNOSIS: Males and females have not been taken together and are only tentatively matched here, but they show similarly odd and seemingly autapomorphic genitalic characters. Males can easily be recognized by the lobate palpal apophysis ( figs. 460–463 View FIGURES 452–463. 452 ), females by the sharply pointed cap on the tip of the anterior genitalic process ( figs. 467, 468 View FIGURES 464–473. 464–468 ).

MALE (PBI_ OON 51323 View Materials , figs. 453–464 View FIGURES 452–463. 452 View FIGURES 464–473. 464–468 ): Total length 1.07. Surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica smooth. Eyes two; ALE touching. Sternum with anterior channels, surface smooth, without pits, microsculpture absent; setae densest laterally. Labium anterior margin indented at middle. Endite tip with sharply pointed, diagonally directed projection. Palpal apophysis lobate, embolus and conductor apparently fused; cymbium not fused with bulb.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 51325 View Materials , figs. 465–468 View FIGURES 464–473. 464–468 ): Total length 0.90. Anterior genitalic process relatively wide, tip rounded, with sharply pointed lateral extensions.
