Apopyllus centralis Azevedo, Ott, Griswold & Santos, 2016   ( Figs 4–5 View FIGURE 4 View FIGURE 5 , 6a View FIGURE 6 )

Material examined. PARAGUAY: Alto Paraguay: Bahía Negra: Estancia Doña Julia , 20°11’12.8”S 58°09’27.1”W, 1♀, 24.IX–3.X.1984, J.A. Kochalka coll. (IBNP-Invert.-JAK-CR 2946) GoogleMaps   , Central: San Lorenzo: Inventario Biológico Nacional , 25°20’20.3”S 57°31’27.2”W, 1♀, 2–12.V.1986, J.A. Kochalka coll., (IBNP-Invert.-JAK-CR 2947) GoogleMaps   .

Distribution. Central Brazil, northern Venezuela and Paraguay.

Remarks. The habitus appearance is similar between the two specimens (4a–b, 5a–b) However, there seems to be variation in the epigynum overall structure ( Figs 4 View FIGURE 4 c–e, 5c–e), especially in the appearance of the epigynum in ventral view ( Figs 4c View FIGURE 4 , 5c View FIGURE 5 ). The specimen from Alto Paraguay was found under a log and the specimen from Departamento Central was found inside a building and both were collected more than thirty years ago by John A. Kochalka.
