Diagnosis . The species is distinguishable from the other species of Euophrys  in Chile by the shape of the tibial apophysis of the palp in the male, which has a shelf and sharp point ( Figs 53–54View FIGURES 49 – 55). In the females, the morphology of the female genitalia ( Figs 51–52View FIGURES 49 – 55) can be distinguished by the combination of the fossa are widely separated and orientated laterally, the seminal ducts do not pass anteriorly to the fossae, the spermathecae are relatively small and only partly posterior to the fossa. The face and leg markings are also different from those of the other Euophrys  species ( Figs 2View FIGURE 2 C, 3 D).

Description . Male: Cephalothorax; brown, PLE and ALE surroundings black, pars thoracica with lighter median strip and a scattering of white pennate hairs on the sides, not darker around lower margin. Clypeus narrow, yellow to light brown. Chelicerae vertical, yellow with light brown proximal areas ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 C), with two promarginal teeth and one retromarginal tooth. Endites, labium, sternum and ventral abdomen yellow with light brown margins. Abdomen pale yellow, elliptical, with a regular pattern of dark brown markings ( Fig. 50View FIGURES 49 – 55). Spinnerets yellow. All legs yellow with a distinctive pattern of brown to black bands ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 D). Spination [shows some variation compared to the pattern reported by Galiano (1962 b)], L 1, femur with three dorsal and one or two distal dorsolateral spines, tibia and metatarsus each with two or three and two pairs of ventrolateral spines respectively. Similar spination on other legs to L 1 except L 4 (sometimes L 3) has one spine on the patella, L 2–4 tibia has three pairs of ventrolateral spines. Palp: Tegulum ( Figs 53–54View FIGURES 49 – 55) trapezoidal with small proximal retrolateral lobe, embolus very small, curved. Tibial apophysis with a distinct shelf. Dimensions: CL 1.76 ± 0.20 (8), EFL 0.71 ± 0.05 (8), CW 1.18 ± 0.11 (8), AEW 1.18 ± 0.06 (8), AMEW 0.73 ± 0.06 (8), PEW 1.14 ± 0.07 (8), SL 0.77 ± 0.09 (8), ( P 4 + T 4) 1.21 ± 0.15 (8).

Female : Cephalothorax; brown, PLE and ALE surroundings black, pars thoracica with lighter median strip and a scattering of white pennate hairs on the sides, not darker around lower margin. Clypeus narrow, yellow to light brown. Chelicerae vertical, yellow with light brown proximal areas with two promarginal teeth and one retromarginal tooth. Endites, labium, sternum and ventral abdomen yellow with light brown margins. Abdomen pale yellow, elliptical, with a regular pattern of dark brown markings ( Fig. 49View FIGURES 49 – 55). Spinnerets yellow. All legs yellow with a distinctive pattern of brown to black bands ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 D). Spination (shows some variation compared to the pattern reported by Galiano 1962 b), L 1, femur with three dorsal and one or two distal dorsolateral spines, tibia and metatarsus each with two or three and two pairs of ventrolateral spines respectively. Similar spination on other legs to L 1, except L 4 (sometimes L 3) has one spine on the patella, L 2–4 tibia has three pairs of ventrolateral spines. Epigynum ( Figs 51–52View FIGURES 49 – 55): poorly sclerotised, with two widely separated fossae oriented outwards and with distinctive, well separated copulatory openings. Insemination ducts relatively short and direct, spermathecae round, with pointed fertilization duct on anterior edge, smaller than the fossae. Dimensions: CL 1.89 ± 0.21 (13), EFL 0.79 ± 0.07 (13), CW 1.36 ± 0.13 (13), AEW 1.27 ± 0.11 (13), AMEW 0.79 ± 0.07 (13), PEW 1.28 ± 0.09 (13), SL 0.86 ± 0.10 (13), ( P 4 + T 4) 1.39 ± 0.15 (13).

Distribution . Known from widely scattered localities in Chile and Argentina ( Fig. 55View FIGURES 49 – 55).
