Type material: Holotype (designated by Gertsch & Davies, 1946): one female, GUATEMALA, Cobán : [15.470962, –90.371535], (Francis C Sarg leg; BMNH; examined). GoogleMaps

Additional material examined: GUATEMALA, Quetzaltenango: one female, Cerro El Baul [Area Protegida El Baúl – 14.831111, –91.502778]; ( TC Meikle and CE Griswold leg; 14 August 1979; CASENT 9039162) GoogleMaps ; MEXICO, Hidalgo: one male, La Misión, El Locote , 13.6 mi.

Diagnosis: Males of S. longispinosus have a RCm, with some papillae as in S. gaimani , but a flattened round end, canoe-shaped instead of bulky ( Figs 22H, 32A). Females of S longispinosus have the epigynum with lateral margins straight and parallel, and posterior margin straight or slightly curved inwards (concavity up; Figs 23E, 36A).

AME 0.06, ALE 0.06, PME 0.06, PLE 0.06. Femur I 2.79 (2.51× prosoma length), Metatarsus I 3.95, TmI 0.13. Prosoma dark yellow, uniform. Opisthosoma beige without markings. Legs same colour as the prosoma, without any marks ( Fig. 22A–D). RCs short, about the same thickness as RCm ( Fig. 22H).

Female (from Quetzaltenango TSM 658). Total length 2.32. Prosoma 0.92 long, 0.75 wide. Prosoma height 0.76, fovea height 0.57. Opisthosoma 1.40 long, 1.03 wide, 1.81 high. Clypeus height 0.11.
