Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4

Coptoprepes valdiviensis Ramírez, 2003: 90   (male holotype and female paratype from Chile, Llanquihue province, Lago Chapo, in AMNH, not reexamined).

Diagnosis: Females are very similar to those of C. ecotono   n. sp. by the rather flat epigyne with rectangular, unsclerotized median field, but can be distinguished by having a lower, transversally oriented profile of the anterior portion of the copulatory ducts (see Ramírez 2003: fig. 42 E). Males are easily distinguished from those of other congeners by the sharp and slender RTA ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 d; Ramírez 2003: fig. 42 B).

Description: Male and female described by Ramírez (2003).

Distribution: Forests of southern Chile and Argentina, in Cautín, Osorno, Llanquihue and Neuquén provinces, plus one isolated record in Ultima Esperanza province, Magallanes (Ramírez 2003).
