Draconarius paraspiralis  sp. nov.

(Figs 322-325, 544)

Type material: Holotype. ♀, CHINA: Yunnan: Lushui County: native forest in Gaoligongshan at 9.5 road km ESE Pianma , N25°59', E98°40', 2500 m, October 15-18, 1998, C. Griswold, D. Kavanaugh, C.L. Long ( HNU)GoogleMaps  .

Paratype. CHINA: Yunnan: Lushui County: 1♂, same data as holotype ( HNU)GoogleMaps  .

Etymology: The specific name refers to its similarity to D. spiralis  sp. nov.; term in apposition. Diagnosis: This new species is similar to D. spiralis  sp. nov. and D. pseudospiralis  sp. nov. in having a large atrium, absence of epigynal teeth, coiled spermathecal tubes, distally coiled conductor, and simple median apophysis, but can be distinguished by the absence of patellar apophysis, the small conductor, and the prolaterally originating embolus in the male, and by the presence of diverticula that arise from spermathecal bases in the female (Figs 322-325).

Description: Female (holotype). Medium sized Coelotinae  , total length 7.20. Dorsal shield of prosoma 3.80 long, 2.60 wide; opisthosoma 3.40 long, 2.40 wide. AME smallest, approximately half the size of ALE; ALE largest; posterior eyes subequal in size, slightly smaller than ALE ( AME 0.10, ALE 0.22, PME 0.20, PLE 0.20); AME separated from each other by their diameter, from ALE by slightly less than AME diameter; PME separated from each other by half of their diameter, from PLE by 3/4 of PME diameter (AME-AME 0.10, AME-ALE 0.07, PME-PME 0.10, PME-PLE 0.16, AME-PME 0.15). Promargin of chelicera with 3 and retromargin with 2 teeth. Epigynal teeth absent; atrium large, but shallow, wider than long, with anterior margin distinctly extending posteriorly to a short septum, which occupies less than half of atrial length; copulatory ducts short, originating anteriorly; spermathecal bases widely separated by about 2 times their width, with long, anteriorly extending diverticula; spermathecal stalks long, anterior and median extending with two coils; spermathecal heads small, but distinct (Figs 322-323).

Male (paratype measured). Medium sized Coelotinae  , total length 8.62. Dorsal shield of prosoma 4.42 long, 3.12 wide; opisthosoma 4.20 long, 3.14 wide. AME smallest, approximately 3/4 the size of other eyes, which are subequal ( AME 0.15, ALE 0.21, PME 0.21, PLE 0.20); AME separated from each other by 2 /3 of their diameter, from ALE by of AME diameter; PME separated from each other by half of their diameter, from PLE by slightly less than their diameter (AME-AME 0.11, AME-ALE 0.05, PME-PME 0.10, PME-PLE 0.18, AME-PME 0.18). Promargin of chelicera with 3 and retromargin with 2 teeth. Palp without patellar apophysis; RTA approximately half of tibial length or slightly longer, with distinctly protruding distal end; lateral tibial apophysis small; cymbial furrow short, slightly less than half of cymbial length; conductor short, with a slightly coiling apex, a slender dorsal apophysis, and a small basal lamella; median apophysis simple, not spoon-shaped; embolus filiform, short, prolateral in origin (Figs 324-325).

Distribution: China (Yunnan: Lushui) (Fig. 544).
