Figures 201–210

Stenoonops phonetus Chickering, 1969a: 16 , figs. 43–46 (male holotype from Cidra, Treasure Island , Puerto Rico, in AMNH; examined).

Scaphioides phonetus: Platnick and Dupérré, 2010: 9 .

DIAGNOSIS: Members of this species resemble those of S. irazu , S. econotus , and S. nitens in having many tubercles on the carapace, arrayed in triangular patches opposite the coxae (fig. 201), but have an iridescent, unpatterned abdomen, a relatively short embolus (figs. 204–207), and a long base of the anterior genitalic process (figs. 209, 210).

MALE (PBI_ OON 21021 View Materials , figs. 201, 202, 204–207): Total length 1.16. 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 with tiny rounded protrusions. Distal portion of embolus with basal grooves on both prolateral and retrolateral sides.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 21021 View Materials , figs. 203, 208–210): Total length 1.35. Anterior genitalic process long, narrow, situated on triangular base.
