Diagnosis. Clubiona gongi  can be distinguished from all other Clubiona  species by: the retrolateral tibial apophysis short, almost as long as wide with blunt end in retrolateral view ( Figs 3AView FIGURE 3, 4BView FIGURE 4); embolus curved, its main portion extending horizontally at the apex of palp bulb in ventral view ( Figs 3CView FIGURE 3, 4C, 4DView FIGURE 4).
