Other material examined: CHINA: Yunnan: Dali: 1♀, Diancang Shan, 3 km W Dali old town, pine forest at "Cloud Road", right upper chairlift station , N25°41.1', E100°06.085', 2650-2750 m, needle and leaf litter, September 1, 2003, D.W. Wrase ( SMF)GoogleMaps  .

Etymology: The species name is derived from the Latin word “latus”, which means “broad”, and refers to the broad conductor compared to other Draconarius incertus  group species; term in apposition.

Diagnosis: D. latusincertus  is similar to D. pseudobrunneus Wang  2003 and D. incertus Wang  2003 in having a similar epigynum and similar palp, but can be distinguished by the distinctly larger body size, the broad conductor in the male; and the large atrium with atrial ridges extending posteriorly close to the epigastric furrow and the distinct anterior extension of the spermathecae in the female (Figs 249-252).

Notes: The female from Dali, Diancang Shan ( SMF) has a similar epigynum as D. latusincertus  sp. nov., but its atrium is wider than long and the spermathecae are much shorter (Figs 263-264). This specimen is temporarily listed here as D. latusincertus  sp. nov. Further collection of both males and females from this location is badly needed.

Description: Male (holotype). Large sized Coelotinae  , total length 11.11 (Fig. 267). Dorsal shield of prosoma 6.30 long, 4.33 wide; opisthosoma 4.81 long, 3.40 wide. AME smallest, 3/4 the size of ALE, which are the largest; posterior eyes subequal in size, slightly smaller than ALE ( AME 0.17, ALE 0.23, PME 0.19, PLE 0.19); AME separated from each other by their diameter, from ALE by half the size of AME; PME separated from each other by slightly less than their diameter, from PLE by more than their diameter; AME and PME separated by AME diameter (AME-AME 0.16, AME-ALE 0.08, PME-PME 0.17, PME-PLE 0.23, AME-PME 0.16) (Fig. 268). Labium subequal in length and width ( L / W =1.09) (Fig. 269). Chelicerae with 3 promarginal and 2 retromarginal teeth. Palp with a short patellar apophysis; RTA more than half of tibial length, with slightly protruding distal end; lateral tibial apophysis distinct, widely separated from RTA; a short macroseta arising near lateral tibial apophysis; cymbial furrow less than half of cymbial length; conductor short, slightly bifurcate, broad, with a slender dorsal apophysis and a small basal lamella; median apophysis simple, not spoon-shaped; embolus short, filiform, prolateral in origin (Figs 251-252, 255-258).

Female (paratype of CASENT9011586 measured). Large sized Coelotinae  , total length 12.15 (Fig. 270). Dorsal shield of prosoma 6.00 long, 4.05 wide; opisthosoma 6.15 long, 4.60 wide. AME smallest, 3/4 the size of ALE, which are the largest; PLE slightly smaller than ALE, PME slightly smaller than PLE ( AME 0.18, ALE 0.24, PME 0.20, PLE 0.22); AME separated from each other by their diameter, from PLE by 2/3 of AME diameter; PME separated from each other by their diameter, from PLE by more than PLE size; AME and PME separated by AME diameter (AME-AME 0.18, AME-ALE 0.12, PME-PME 0.20, PME-PLE 0.25, AME-PME 0.18) (Fig. 271). Labium slightly longer than wide ( L / W =1.11) (Fig. 272). Promargin of chelicera with 3, retromargin with 2 teeth. Epigynal teeth absent; atrium large, with distinct, posteriorly protruding anterior margin and indistinct lateral margins; atrial ridges distinct, situated on posterior half of atrium, slightly extending posteriorly, but distinctly separated from epigastric furrow; copulatory ducts short, originating and extending between spermathecae; spermathecae broad, slightly elongated, widely separated, anteriorly extending beyond heads; spermathecal heads arising from distal half of spermathecae (Figs 249-250, 253-254, 259-266).

Distribution: China (Yunnan: Dali, Fugong) (Fig. 542).
