Ischnothyreus darwini Edward and Harvey, 2009: 288–292   , figs. 1–11.

TYPES: AUSTRALIA: Northern Territory: Male holotype and female allotype collected from sifted rainforest leaf litter and under logs in Mary River National Park, Bryan Creek monsoon patch, 12.66083 ° S, 131.78194 ° E (25 Apr. 2008, K. Edward and P. Cullen), deposited in MAGNT (³ holotype: A004398, PBI _ OON 5889; ♀ allotype: A004399, PBI _ OON 5892). Paratypes: see Edward and Harvey (2009) GoogleMaps   .

DIAGNOSIS: This species can be distinguished from all others by the the unique shape of the embolic region of the male palp that divides roughly into two lobes, and the Ù-shaped epigynal atrium and thin convoluted duct of the female epigynal region. Males do not have a distinct knob or modification of the basal part of the fang, but is slightly flattened. The lateral margins of the carapace of both sexes are light olive green with the elevated portion of pars cephalica a lighter yellow or pale orange.
