Pholcus satun Huber, 2011: 144  , figs 515–516, 580–582 (♂).

Diagnosis

Easily distinguished from all known congeners by long sickle-shaped bulbal process and by unique shape of procursus (long, S-shaped, with subdistal ventral pointed process; fig. 580 in Huber 2011); from other species in the buatong  group also by longer than wide female internal genitalia ( Fig. 170 View Figure ).

New material examined

THAILAND: 1 ♀, in absolute ethanol, ZFMK ( Mal 328), Satun  , Thaleban National Park (6°42.6' N, 100°10.2' E) (type locality), forest near headquarters , 110 m a.s.l., leaf litter, 5 Mar. 2015 (B.A. Huber, B. Petcharad)GoogleMaps  .

Description (female)

In general similar to male ( Fig. 149 View Figure ; cf. Huber 2011), but eye triads on low humps and closer together (distance PME-PME: 185 µm) and black mark at ocular area smaller. AME present as in male. Tibia 1 in 3 females: 5.5, 5.6, 6.1. Epigynum longer than wide, mostly weakly sclerotized, with large dark ‘knob’ at posterior margin, anterior internal arch visible through cuticle ( Figs 169 View Figure , 187–188 View Figure ); posterior plate laterally slightly more sclerotized. Internal genitalia as in Figs 170 View Figure and 189 View Figure .
