Epanerchodus  soror— Golovatch, 2014a: 275, 286.

Material examined: 1 male, 18 females ( SCAU) from China, Yunnan Province, Zhenxiong County, Hama Dong Cave, 23.VI.2015, colls: Mingyi Tian , Weixin Liu , Xinhui Wang and Mingruo Tang. 

Notes: This species has been described from several caves in Zhenxiong County, Yunnan Province. The new material was collected from another cave in the same county. The new material agrees closely with the original description ( Geoffroy and Golovatch 2004), but the gonopodal endomere is more strongly curved ( Fig. 21 View Figure ) vs. suberect in the earlier documented material.
