This specimen is very close to the species T. cinereum Thorell, 1875, T. petraeum L. Koch, 1872, T. furfuraceum Simon, 1914, T. pyrenaeum Denis, 1944 and T. wiehlei Schenkel, 1938. Due to the small genitalic differences in all males of these species, we could not make a differential diagnosis on our single male specimen. Identification based on DNA does not pair this specimen with central European T. petraeum populations, which is also supported by morphological data, such as a different shape in the base of the embolus and a longer median apophysis.
