Thyenula munda ( Peckham & Peckham 1903 )
status

comb. nov.

Thyenula munda ( Peckham & Peckham 1903)  comb. nov.

Saitis mundus Peckham & Peckham 1903: 198  , pl. 21, figs 3, 3a.

Thyenula hortensis Wesołowska & Cumming 2008: 219  , figs181–187, syn. nov.

Material. 2 males, syntypes of S. mundus  , ZIMBABWE, Gazaland, Mashonaland, ( MCZ)  ; 3 males, 4 females, paratypes of T. hortensis  , Harare, suburban garden, pitfall trap, 8–22 November 2004, leg. M. Cumming ( MNH)  .

Description of both sexes in Wesołowska & Cumming (2008).

Remarks. The syntypes of S. mundus  are identically with the paratypes of T. hortensis  , only differing in missing the white streaks along the lateral slopes of carapace, probably the consequence of rubbing off these light hairs. The synonymy of the two species is proposed here.

Distribution. Known only from Zimbabwe.
