Notes

First record for the Iberian Peninsula. See Fig. 6. The single male specimen collected presents slight differences to both the illustrations made by Wunderlich ( Wunderlich 1973, which revised Thorell's type materials) or those by Thaler ( Thaler 1983), namely, the tibial apophysis, which seems more robust and the shape of the lamella characteristica, especially the central sclerotised branch (arrow in Fig. 6b), which is bifid in our specimen, unlike the lanceolate shape depicted by Thaler. The similarities, however, outline the differences, as the small finger-like protuberance in the retrolateral branch of the lamella is present and the tibia is also dorsally protuberant, along with a well-developed retrolateral tibial apophysis. A recent citation of this species was done from France by Oger & Miquet ( Oger and Miquet 2017), who show a very similar male specimen to ours, with a robust terminal apophysis.
