Tetragnatha guatemalensis O. Pickard­Cambridge 1889 

( Figs 53–57View FIGURES 53 – 63. 53 – 57)

Material examined.— Canada: Québec: Brome­Missisquoi, Saint­Armand [45 °02’N, 73 °03’W] 21.viii. 1999, beating near lake, 4 ɗ 1 Ψ, N. Dupérré ( CPAD).

Diagnosis.— Males are recognised by the slender curved tip of the conductor (C) ( Fig. 55View FIGURES 53 – 63. 53 – 57) and the laterally angled paracymbium tip (P) ( Fig. 56View FIGURES 53 – 63. 53 – 57). Females are diagnosed by the shape of the spermathecae ( Fig. 57View FIGURES 53 – 63. 53 – 57).

Distribution.— Known in north­eastern North America from Québec (this record) and Nova Scotia to southern California and Florida, Panama and the West Indies (see Dondale et al. 2003).

Remark.— The occurrence of the species in Québec was suspected by Hutchinson & Bélanger (1994), but was not included in Paquin & Dupérré (2003). Levi (1981) lists ’trail near marsh’ as a potential habitat for the species, which is more or less corroborated by the present record.
