Stenoonops petrunkevitchi Chickering, 1951: 241 , figs. 29, 30 (male holotype from Barro Colorado Island, Panamá, Panama, in MCZ; examined). – Chickering, 1969: 14, figs. 31–33 (description of female).

DIAGNOSIS: Males resemble those of S. murphyorum in embolus shape, but have the tip of the embolus bifid and accompanied by a conductor (figs. 134–151); females have a bulbous anterior genitalic projection (figs. 160, 161, 170, 171).

MALE (PBI_ OON 27176 View Materials , figs. 127–151): Total length 1.28. Elevated portion of pars cephalica finely reticulate; posterior eye row straight from above, procurved from front. Endites with long, oblique, longitudinal ridge. Embolus bifid, accompanied by conductor (figs. 134–151).

VARIATION: Because the species seems to have an unusually large distribution range, we have documented specimens from two disparate localities in Costa Rica (Hone Creek and Osa Peninsula) and one in northern Panama (Cerro Colorado, figs. 140–151, 162–171), in addition to specimens from the type locality (Barro Colorado Island, Panama, figs. 127– 139, 152–161). Although there are of course differences among these specimens, they seem to represent individual rather than geographically correlated variation.

DISTRIBUTION: Costa Rica and Panama.
