Arrenurus (Brevicaudaturus) laticodulus Piersig, 1898 

Arrenurus (Arrenurus) mammifera Nayar, 1969: 71  . New syn.

K.O. Viets (1987) suspected A. mammifera  to be a synonym of A. laticodulus  . The similar shape and morphology of the idiosoma and genital plates confirm these observations. Therefore, we are of the opinion that the species described by Nayar (1969) is indeed a junior synonym of A. laticodulus  .
