Ebo eremus Levy, 1999  

Figs. 47, 48

Adult male from Avedat, Israel, leg. Efrat Elimelech, along with female, March 24, 2004, pitfall trap ( HUJ 15480 View Materials ).

Description. Carapace dorsally with brown sides and light-brown, broad median band turning almost white anteriorly. Sternum densely covered by small brown dots on light background. Opisthosoma grey with dark mid-dorsal marking and grey posterior chevrons. Legs yellow brown mottled with small dark spots.

Male. Measurements: total length 3.3; carapace length 1.5, width 1.5, index 1.0; femur II length 3.0, width 0.3, length/width 10.

Palpus. Patella with wide, brown retrolateral apophysis, and tibia with strong retrolateral apophysis with round distended tip (Figs. 47, 48). Tegulum with fine looping seminal tube terminating apically with sclerotized hook rising above whitish, elongated conductor (Fig. 47). Short hook-like tegular apophysis projects from concavity at retrolateral apical part of tegulum (Figs. 47, 48).

Diagnosis. The previously unknown male of Ebo eremus   represents along with E. patellidens Levy   a line of male species with palpi bearing a patellar apophysis ( Levy 1977, figs. 36, 37). The shape of the tegular sclerites and of the peculiar tibial and patellar apophyses distinguish E. eremus   clearly from E. patellidens   and from all other Ebo   species.

Distribution. Israel: Central Negev. Records: Hatira Ridge, Avedat.
