status

 

Pterotricha Kulczynski, 1903: 43. 

Bobineus  Roewer 1955: 773.

Pterotricha  : Dalmas 1921: 248; Levy 1995: 944; Murphy 2007: 122-123.

Type species.

Aranea lentiginosa  C. L. Koch, 1837.

Comments.

The genus belongs to Gnaphosinae  , and like all other members of this subfamily has a serrated keel on chelicera. It is easily distinguished from all other Gnaphosinae  by long to very long spinnerets (Figs 1c, 4a, 6 a–b, 10 b–c, 11g), the male palp with squarrose tibial apophysis and a heavily sclerotized (non-membranous) and pointed “conductor”. Most of the species have a stylus on embolus (vs. lacking in all other genera).

Distribution.

The genus is known from Spain to South Africa, to western India, with a single, doubtful record of Pterotricha saga  ( Dönitz & Strand, 1906) from Japan (most likely belonging to Callilepis  Westring, 1874).
