Type material.

Holotype ♂ - VIETNAM: Ninh Binh Province, disturbed forest of Cuc Phuong National Park [20°17.066'N, 105°40.253'E, elevation 273 m], pitfall traps, March 1-30, 2008. Paratypes: 26♂ (IZCAS), same data as holotype.

Etymology.

The specific epithet, a Latinised adjective, refers to the type locality.

Diagnosis.

The new species shares with Sinopesa kumensis  the complete absence of an abdominal pattern and the presence of a short male palpal tibia, but it can be distinguished from the latter species by the complete absence of PMS and by the presence of a globular bulb and of a gradually tapering and apically hooked embolus (oval and corkscrew-shaped, respectively) in Sinopesa kumensis  (see Figs 20 A–C, 21 A–C, and Shimojana and Haupt 2000: figs. 3 A–B).

Description.

Male (holotype): TL 7.55, CL 2.95, CW 2.45, AL 3.20, AW 1.85. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.11, ALE 0.14, PME 0.12, PLE 0.10, AME–AME 0.07, AME–ALE 0.04, PME–PME 0.26, PME–PLE 0.03. Leg lengths: I: 9.90 (2.75+1.50+2.55+2.15+1.25), II: 8.10 (2.25+1.15+2.10+1.50+1.10), III: 8.15 (1.75+0.95+2.00+2.15+1.30), IV: 10.60 (2.80+1.15+2.40+2.80+1.45). Venter as shown in Fig. 20G. Maxillae with a few (ca. 10) cuspules. Prosoma, palps and legs light brown. Abdomen, including spinnerets, light grey (Fig. 20D, G). Metatarsus I considerably curved and bent (Fig. 20E). PMS absent, apical segment of PLS digitiform (Fig. 20D, G). Palpal tibia moderately short and slightly swollen; bulb globular, thin and narrow-based embolus hooked distally (Figs 20 A–C, 21 A–C).
