Etymology. The specific name is a patronym in honour of our friend and colleague Vladimir I. Ovtsharenko (New York).

Diagnosis. Males of the new species are similar to these of B. ubsunurica  from which they can be easily distinguished by the tibial apophysis lacking a small tooth, the larger median apophysis and by having a triangle shaped outgrowth near the tip of embolus. Females of B. ovtsharenkoi  sp. n. are most similar to B. hui  from which they differ by having no peak of the fovea and larger receptacles.

Description. Male (holotype). Total length 6.8. Carapace: 3.15 long, 2.45 wide. Coloration: carapace, legs, palps, chelicerae, maxillae and labium yellow. Carapace dorsally with pattern formed by gray hairs ( Fig. 45View FIGURES 38 – 45). Abdomen gray dorsally and yellow ventrally. Spination of leg IV: femur: d 1 - 1 - 1, p0- 0-1, r0- 0-1; patella: p 1 -0, r 1 -0; tibia: d 1 - 0-1, p 1 - 1 - 1, r 1 - 1 - 1, v 2 - 2 - 2; metatarsus: d 1-2 -0, p 1 - 1 -0, r 1 - 1 -0, v 3 (2)- 1-2.

Leg article length.

Palp as in Figs 38–44View FIGURES 38 – 45; tibia with small sharply pointed tibial apophysis; median apophysis long, longer than embolus, embolus short, with triangle-shaped outgrowth near tip ( Fig. 44View FIGURES 38 – 45).

Female. Total length 4.85. Carapace: 2.3 long, 1.75 wide. Coloration as in male.

Spination of leg IV: femur: d 1 - 1 -0, p0- 0-1, r0- 0-1; patella: r 1 -0; tibia: d 1 -0-0(1), p 1 - 1 - 1, r 1 (2)- 1 - 1, v 2 - 2 - 2; metatarsus: d 1-2 -0, p 1 - 1 -0, r 1 - 1 -0, v 2 (3)- 2 (1)-0(2).
