Type material.

Holotype ♀ (ZMMU): Tajikstan: env of Dushanbe, Hissar Mt. Ridge, 20th km of Varzob Hwy, Gusgarf [Gushharf] Vill., N exposed slope with Acer litter & cliffs, 38°44'22"N, 68°47'33"E, 1750 m, 8.05.2015, Y. M. Marusik. Paratype: 1♀ (IZCAS), same data as holotype.

Etymology.

The species is named after Tajikistan zoologist Rustam Muratov (Dushanbe, Tajikistan) who was very helpful in organizing the expedition to Tajikistan; noun (name) in genitive case.

Diagnosis.

The female can be distinguished from all other Pireneitega species except Pireneitega fedotovi , Pireneitega luniformis (Zhu & Wang, 1994), and Pireneitega major by having narrow epigynal teeth and an elongate oval atrium. It can be distinguished from Pireneitega fedotovi by the pointed tip of septum (vs blunt tip in Pireneitega fedotovi ), from Pireneitega luniformis by the elongate oval receptacles (vs spiralled in Pireneitega luniformis ), and from Pireneitega major by its short epigynal teeth, ca. 0.8 times as long as length of the atrium (vs long epigynal teeth in Pireneitega major , about as long as the length of the atrium) (Figs 3, 7; Charitonov 1946: fig. 4; Zhu and Wang 1994: figs 5-6).

Description.

Male: unknown.

Female (holotype): Total length 9.94. Carapace 4.49 long, 3.05 wide. Abdomen 5.45 long, 2.90 wide. Eye sizes and interdistances: AME 0.18, ALE 0.23, PME 0.24, PLE 0.30; AME-AME 0.10, AME-ALE 0.05, PME-PME 0.15, PME-PLE 0.10. Leg measurements: I: 11.25 (3.25, 4.00, 2.50, 1.50); II: 10.30 (3.00, 3.50, 2.50, 1.30); III: 9.70 (2.75, 3.00, 2.65, 1.30); IV: 13.75 (3.75, 4.25, 4.00, 1.75). Carapace yellow, the radial grooves indistinct. Abdomen whitish-yellow, with green herringbone pattern.

Epigyne as in Fig. 3 A–B: epigynal teeth narrow, their length equal to width of the narrowest part of the atrium; septum with well delimited tip, ca. 0.5 times as long as wide; copulatory opening distinct; atrium with well delimited posterior margin, about 1.4 times longer than wide, ca. 2 times longer than and 0.7 times as wide as septum; receptacles long, about 2.5 times as long as wide, bases of receptacles separated by 2 diameters; copulatory ducts with 3 parts, median part as long as receptacles, and anterior part slightly wider than receptacles; hoods indistinct.
