Discussion and differential diagnosis. The new species Kyklioacalles atlasicus  from the High Atlas of Morocco must be compared with the related species from the Anti-Atlas, Kyklioacalles maroccensis ( Stüben, 2001)  . The latter was described as an Acalles  species at first ( Stüben 2001: 182–184); but this was revealed later as a mistake ( Stüben 2003 a: 142 f.). This species belongs to the Genus Kyklioacalles  , because the basal part of the endophallus consists of a cyclic—even if weakly developed—structure ( Fig. 29View FIGURES 25 – 29). The closely related new species has a more highly developed, complete and strongly cyclical structure of the endophallus ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 25 – 29). Moreover there are some different characters:
