Scaphioides nitens: Platnick and Dupérré, 2010: 9 .

DIAGNOSIS: Members of this species resemble those of S. irazu , S. phonetus , and S. econotus in having many tubercles on the carapace, arrayed in triangular patches opposite the coxae (fig. 300), but have a white abdomen, without patterning or iridescence, a relatively long embolus (figs. 303, 304), and a relatively short, narrow base of the anterior genitalic process (figs. 311, 312).

MALE (PBI_ OON 26564 View Materials , figs. 240–269, 300, 301, 303–309): Total length 1.31. Elevated portion of pars cephalica smooth, sides granulate. ALE separated by less than their radius. Sternum surface smooth, covered with large round pits, microsculpture only around furrows, furrows with rows of small pits, anterior margin with interrupted transverse groove. Endite tip rebordered, rounded. Both proximal and distal portions of embolus deeply ridged prolaterally, distal portion finely ridged retrolaterally.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 26564 View Materials , figs. 270–299, 302, 310–312): Total length 1.31. Anterior genitalic process narrow, distally curved, situated on long, narrow base.
