The Maratus pavonis  group

( FIGURES 15View FIGURE 15 C, F, I, 16A ‒I)

This group contains those species with an embolic disc which has a broad smooth rim and a broad bent embolic ridge with the embolic opening at the frontal end ( Fig. 15View FIGURE 15 F). The lateral process of the embolic disc has a pointed tip and zig-zag longitudinal ridges ( Fig. 15View FIGURE 15 I).

Further SEM examination of the embolic discs of known and other putative M. pavonis  specimens will clarify if the palpal characters shown in M. pavonis var nornalup  are also present elsewhere in the Maratus pavonis  group.
