Diagnosis

By the body coloration, M. lympha   is most similar to M. jocquei   and M. tanzanica   gen. et sp. nov. The males can be distinguished from those of M. jocquei   by the smaller apical projection (ApP), with its tip pointed ventrad (bigger and pointed dorsad in M. jocquei   ) (cf. Figs 109, 111 View Figs 107–116 and 57–58 View Figs 52–59 , 64 View Figs 60–71 correspondingly); the tibial apophysis narrow in M. lympha   ( Fig. 108 View Figs 107–116 ) while it is broad in M. jocquei   and M. tanzanica   gen. et sp. nov. ( Figs 61 View Figs 60–71 and 188 View Figs 188–193 , correspondingly). From the latter species, M. lympha   can be distinguished by the larger ApP (small, poorly visible in M. tanzanica   gen. et sp. nov.) (cf. Figs 111 View Figs 107–116 and 192 View Figs 188–193 ). The females of M. lympha   are indistinguishable from those of M. jocquei   and M. nigritibia   , but can be separated from those of M. botswana   gen. et sp. nov. and M. petroae   gen. et sp. nov. by the absence of white scaly stripes running from the AME’s outer rim to the lateral sides of carapace (cf. Figs 129 View Figs 117–130 , 82 View Figs 72–82 , 152 View Figs 143–153 , 44 View Figs 37–45 and 180 View Figs 168–181 ).
