Diagnosis. Males of B. ubsunururica  differ from sibling B. mishenini  sp. n. by a broader embolus, profile of the tibial apophysis (cf. Figs 3View FIGURES 1 – 9 & 24View FIGURES 20 – 29). Females of B. ubsunururica  are similar to these of B. nenilini  , B. hui  and B. spasskyi  . They differ from B. nenilini  by the narrower peak and shape of lateral pockets. From B. hui  they differ by the wider peak, widely spaced receptacles and wide fovea. Females of B. ubsunurica  differ from B. spasskyi  by having a smaller peak and larger oval shaped receptacles (round and very small in B. spasskyi  ).

Comments. The male of this species is well described in Marusik & Logunov (1995) and here we provide detailed figures of the male palp and describe the previously unknown female.

Description. Female. Total length 3.25–4.25. Carapace: 1.71 long, 1.36 wide. Spination of leg IV: femur: d 1 - 0-1, p0- 0-1, r0- 0-1; patella: r 1; tibia: d 1 - 0-1, p 1 - 0-1, r 1 - 0-1, v 2 - 2 - 2; metatarsus: d 2 - 2 - 2, p 0-1 -0, r 0-1 -0, v 2 - 2 - 2.

Leg article length.

Epigyne as in Figs 10–12View FIGURES 10 – 19, fovea heart like, wider than high, with small peak, receptacles oval, spaced about their height.

Distribution. Although Platnick (2014) lists this species only from Russia it has also been reported from Mongolia ( Marusik & Logunov 1999, 2006). So far, it is known from Southern Tuva ( Marusik et al. 2000), Bayankhongor, Ömnögovi and Dundgovi Aimags of Mongolia.
