Apopyllus silvestrii: Platnick & Shadab, 1984: 3  , figs 1–4.

Diagnosis. Males can be distinguished by truncated terminal tip of RTA in dorsal view ( Figs 7View FIGURE 7 A, 8A), a sinuous outline of the apical keel of RTA ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9 A) and dorsal keel of RTA rounded and curved in retrobasal view ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9 B). Females can be distinguished by the parallel PDT and LATAbout LAT and by the secondary spermatheca much smaller than the primary spermatheca ( Figs 12View FIGURE 12 A, 13A).

Description. See Platnick & Shadab (1984). In addition, the RTA has a small basal retrolateral tubercle ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 C).

Variation. Male carapace length (N=18) 1.84–3.32. Female carapace length (N=15) 2.28–3.32.
