Stenoonops portoricensis Petrunkevitch, 1929: 72 , figs. 61–63 (male holotype from Toa Alta, Puerto Rico, in AMNH; examined).– Chickering, 1969a: 7, figs. 14–18 (first description of female).

DIAGNOSIS: Males can be recognized by the prolateral spur near the tip of the embolus (figs. 408, 409), females by the basally widened anterior genitalic projection (figs. 416, 417).

MALE (PBI_OON 372, figs. 401–409): Total length 1.48. Carapace and sternum not scanned. Dorsum of abdomen with patches of dark pigment visible through cuticle. Embolus with short, spiniform prolateral process situated near tip of longer, distally curled retrolateral process.

FEMALE (PBI_OON 379, figs. 410–417): Total length 1.80. Anterior genitalic projection long, narrow, posterior portion with triangular median receptaculum extending posterior of procurved rim.

MATERIAL EXAMINED: WEST INDIES: Puerto Rico: Private Reserve Natural El Tallonal, Dominguito Ward, Arecibo Mun. , Aug. 2008, leaf litter (S. Castillo, AMNH PBI_OON 379), 1♀ ; Ranger Station, Guanica Dry Forest , 17.971472°N, 66.867958°W, July 19–22, 2011 (I. Agnarsson et al., USNM 392858, PBI_ OON 43635 View Materials ), 1♀ GoogleMaps ; Toa Alta, sifting ( AMNH PBI_OON 372), 1♂ (holotype) ; University Farm, N of campus, Mayagüez, Jan. 25, 1964 (A.

Figures 418–425 View FIGS

TYPES: Male holotype and female allotype from forest litter taken at an elevation of 800 m at the Salto Jimenoa, 7 km SE of Jarabacoa, La Vega, Dominican Republic, Hispaniola (July 31, 1995; S., J. Peck), deposited in AMNH (PBI_ OON 21094 View Materials ) .

ETYMOLOGY: The specific name refers to the excavations on the anterior metatarsi.

DIAGNOSIS: Males can be recognized by the C-shaped tip of the embolus (figs. 419, 421), females by the basally narrow anterior genitalic projection (figs. 424, 425). The distinct abdominal pattern found in the male (fig. 418) is not detectable in the female taken with it (fig. 420). MALE (PBI_ OON 21094 View Materials , figs. 418, 419, 421, 422): Total length 1.38. Carapace and sternum not scanned. Abdomen with strong dark pigment patches visible through cuticle on dorsum, sides, venter. Embolus with distal portion C-shaped.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 21094 View Materials , figs. 420, 423–425): Total length 1.51. Abdomen with no pigment patches visible through cuticle. Dorsal view: anterior genitalic projection very long, narrow, situated on very short base.
