Icublabia multispinosa Galileo & Martins, 2003 

( Figures 49–58View FIGURES 49–58)

Icublabia multispinosa Galileo & Martins, 2003a: 166  ; Monné, 2005: 415 (cat.); Monné & Hovore, 2006: 248 (checklist); Monné, 2018b: 561 (cat.).

Icublabia  was described for a single species, I. multispinosa  , also based in a single female from Ecuador (Napo). According to the original description of the genus (translated): “Scape slender, subcylindrical, without apical cicatrix, in side view, curved toward inferior side near apex.” However, the drawing of the original description ( Fig. 58View FIGURES 49–58) shows the scape extremely narrowed on basal half, then distinctly wined toward apex. Evidently, the scape in the holotype ( Figs. 49–52View FIGURES 49–58), and in the second known female ( Figs. 53–57View FIGURES 49–58) are not different. Furthermore, it is distinctly sinuous, which was not mentioned in the description of the genus or species.

The second known female is nearly identical to the holotype except for the tooth placed after lateral spine of the prothorax. In the holotype, it is jointly protracted with the lateral spine, while in the female from Colombia it is not so, being placed close to the posterior margin of the lateral spine. We believe this is only specific variation.

Material examined. COLOMBIA (new country record), Putumayo: road San Francisco—Mocoa (01º04’16”N / 76º44’46”W, 2940 m), 1 female, 21.IV.2018, V. Sinyaev col. ( MZSP)GoogleMaps  .
