Type material.

Holotype ♂ (ZMMU): Tajikstan, Khatlon Area, Dangara Distr., Sanglogh (=Sanglok) Mt. Range above Shar-Shar Pass, 38°17'56"N, 69°13'36"E, 1700-2060 m, 29.04.2015, (Y.M. Marusik). Paratypes: 3♂ (IZCAS), 2♂ (ZMMU), same data as holotype.

Etymology.

The specific name is a patronym in honour of the well known arachnologist and friend of the junior author Mykola M. Kovblyuk (Simferopol, Ukraine); noun (name) in genitive case.

Diagnosis.

The male can be distinguished from all other Pireneitega species except Pireneitega tianchiensis by having a hook-shaped conductor, and narrow cymbium. It can be distinguished from Pireneitega tianchiensis by the short cymbial furrow, ca. 1/10 length of cymbium (vs long cymbial furrow in Pireneitega tianchiensis , about 0.5 length of cymbium) (Fig. 6; Wang et al. 1990: figs 81-83).

Description.

Male (holotype): Total length 7.90. Carapace 4.00 long, 3.00 wide. Abdomen 3.90 long, 2.65 wide. Eye sizes and interdistances: AME 0.15, ALE 0.20, PME 0.18, PLE 0.19; AME-AME 0.08, AME-ALE 0.07, PME-PME 0.13, PME-PLE 0.15. Leg measurements: I: 10.90 (3.25, 4.05, 2.00, 1.60); II: 9.85 (3.00, 3.50, 2.00, 1.35); III: 8.60 (2.75, 2.50, 2.10, 1.25); IV: 12.55 (3.70, 3.75, 3.50, 1.60). Carapace yellow, the radial grooves indistinct. Abdomen pale, with yellow herringbone pattern.

Palp as in Fig. 6 A–C: patellar apophysis absent; tibia long, ca. 0.5 length of cymbium; VTA short and wide, about 1/3 length of tibia, without pointed tip; RTA short, about 1/5 length of VTA, poorly visible; cymbium long, its tip as long as or longer than genital bulb; conductor short, with hook-shaped, partially looped tip, tip located distally from tegulum; median apophysis broad and nearly triangular; embolus with broad, nearly tongue-shaped base, beginning at 6:30 o’clock position.
