Neonella montana Galiano, 1988: 447   , figs 14, 21. Holotype ♀, Cuesta Cura Brochero, Provincia de Córdoba, Argentina, not examined. World Spider Catalog 2015.

Neonella cabana Galiano, 1998: 15   , figs 4‒6, 11 ‒ 12. Holotype ♂, Cabana   , Provincia de Córdoba, Argentina, not examined. World Spider Catalog 2015. NEW SYNONYMY.

Note. Galiano (1998: 16) noticed the possibility that the male described as N. cabana   could belong with the female described as N. montana   . The large amount of males and females collected together in the same location, added to Galiano’s notes, provide evidence of the synonymy.

Description. Male: See Galiano (1998: 15, as N. cabana   ). Female: See Galiano (1988: 447).

Variation. Total length: males, 1.05‒1.72 (n= 22); females, 1.11‒2.06 (n= 34). Carapace length: males, 0.52‒0.78; females, 0.58‒0.86. Coloration: highly variable patterns in male, from very dark to light-colored specimens ( Figs 9 View FIGURES 1 ‒ 12 , 20 View FIGURES 13 ‒ 25 ). Embolus: pectinate process variably branched ( Figs 23‒25 View FIGURES 13 ‒ 25 ).
