Diagnosis. Ariadna levii   is similar to A. crassipalpa   , A. mollis   , A. boesenbergi   , A. calilegua   , A. changellkuk   and A. perkinsi   due to the dark abdominal pattern with arrow-shaped marks ( Figs 1A‒C View FIGURE 1 , 18A, F View FIGURE 18 , 20A, F View FIGURE 20 , 22A, F View FIGURE 22 , 31A, E View FIGURE31 , 45A, F View FIGURE 45 , 47A, F View FIGURE 47 , 50A, F View FIGURE 50 ), but males differ by the presence of metatarsi I straight with two apophyses: one ventro-prolateral bearing a short and curved macrosetae, and a ventro-retrolateral one, with non-modified macrosetae ( Fig. 50C‒E View FIGURE 50 ; Grismado 2008, fig. 6H); females are distinguished by the presence of a dorsal lobe longer than the ventral lobe ( Fig. 51C‒D View FIGURE 51 ).
