Taxonomic remarks. Both males from ZMHAbout ZMH are dissected, a chelicera and some legs are missing. One specimen is listed as a “ syntype ” (ex Typus) at the SMFAbout SMF (catalog no. 6849) but this is not a complete male specimen but rather a miscroscope slide with chelicerae, palp and legs 1,4 most probably dissected from the ZMHAbout ZMH specimen. Muma (1970: 38) confirms that the type is at the ZMHAbout ZMH.
