Emended diagnosis. Species of Guadana Rheims resemble those of Sparianthina Banks in having intermarginal denticles arranged in a row; two pairs of ventral spines on tibiae I−II and one lateral spine on each side of metatarsi I−II (see Jäger et al. 2009: figs 10, 33; Rheims 2010a: fig. 7); and male palps with a strong dorsal tegular apophysis (DTA) ( Figs 57−66 View FIGURES 57−66 , 94−102 View FIGURES 94−102 ); female palp with a long-toothed claw ( Jäger et al. 2009: figs 13, 64). They are distinguished from those of the latter genus by the male palps with DTA acutely tapering ( Figs 57−66 View FIGURES 57−66 ); embolus with basal projection absent or at the prolateral side of the embolus ( Figs 67−76 View FIGURES 67−76 ) (DTA roundly blunt or distally widened, basal projection at the retrolateral or ventral side of the embolus in Sparianthina ) and by the female vulva with glandular projection absent and fertilization ducts short (e.g., Figs 5 View FIGURES 1−5 , 30 View FIGURES 29−33 , 47 View FIGURES 43−47 ) (glandular projection present and fertilization ducts long in Sparianthina ).

Description. See Rheims (2010a).

Distribution. North and northwestern South America, with records from French Guiana, Brazil, Ecuador and Peru ( Figs 81−82 View FIGURES 81−82 ).
