Type material.

Holotype ♀ (ZMMU): Tajikstan: Khatlon Area, Hissar Mt. Range, Ramit Reserve, 38°44'36"N, 69°18'30"E, 1324 m, 1.05.2015 (Y.M. Marusik). Paratypes: 4♀ (IZCAS), 2♀ (ZMMU), same data as holotype.

Etymology.

The specific name is an adjective and refers to the type locality; adjective.

Diagnosis.

The female can be distinguished from all other Pireneitega species except Pireneitega muratovi sp. n., Pireneitega fedotovi , Pireneitega luniformis and Pireneitega major , by having an elongate oval atrium, narrow epigynal teeth, and long copulatory ducts. It can be distinguished from Pireneitega muratovi sp. n. and Pireneitega luniformis by the narrow tip of the copulatory ducts (vs round tip in Pireneitega muratovi sp. n. and Pireneitega luniformis ) and from Pireneitega fedotovi and Pireneitega major by the bent epigynal teeth (vs straight epigynal teeth in Pireneitega fedotovi and Pireneitega major ) (Figs 3, 5, 7; Charitonov 1946: fig. 4; Zhu and Wang 1994: figs 5-6).

Description.

Male: unknown.

Female (holotype): Total length 12.00. Carapace 4.50 long, 3.55 wide. Abdomen 7.50 long, 4.75 wide. Eye sizes and interdistances: AME 0.20, ALE 0.23, PME 0.25, PLE 0.20; AME-AME 0.10, AME-ALE 0.20, PME-PME 0.10, PME-PLE 0.23. Leg measurements: I: 14.05 (4.00, 4.75, 3.45, 1.85); II: 13.40 (3.90, 4.50, 3.25, 1.75); III: 13.00 (3.75, 4.25, 3.25, 1.75); IV: 16.55 (4.75, 5.40, 4.40, 2.00). Carapace yellowish, with brown lateral margins. Abdomen pale-yellow, with brown spots.

Epigyne as in Fig. 5 A–B: epigynal teeth pale, hyaline, long and thin, about 0.9 times as long as receptacles; septum with weakly sclerotized tip, ca. 0.5 times as long as wide, nearly triangular; copulatory ducts distinct; atrium about 1.4 times longer than wide, with well delimited posterior margin, ca. 2.8 times longer than and about as wide as septum; receptacles large, about. 3 times longer than wide; receptacle bases separated by about 2 diameters; copulatory ducts with 3 parts, basal part about 2/3 of receptacle length, median part as long as receptacle, terminal part somewhat shorter than median part; hoods distinct.
