status

 

Arrenurus (Arrenurus) spinosus Walter, 1929 

Arrenurus (Arrenurus) incisifrons Nayar, 1969: 73  . New syn.

Lundblad (1969) synonymized A. projectus Cook, 1967  with A. spinosus  . K.O. Viets (1987) suspected A. incisifrons  to be synonymous with A. projectus  . We agree with both authors, as both species have a similar shape of the idiosoma and petiole. Therefore A. incisifrons  is now a junior synonym of A. spinosus  .
