Meriola puyehue Platnick & Ewing, 1995: 31   , figs 77–81 (female holotype from Parque Nacional Puyehue , Osorno, Región de los Lagos (X), Chile, in AMNH, examined from photographs, thanks to Ricardo Botero Trujillo; Fig. 66 View FIGURE 66 e–f).

Diagnosis. Males ( Figs 65 View FIGURE 65 , 66 View FIGURE 66 a–d) are recognized by the very short embolus, concealed by the distal tegular lobe, and by the short, digitiform RTA that is directed dorsally. Females ( Figs 64 View FIGURE 64 , 66 View FIGURE 66 e–f) are recognized by the elevated transversal ridge in the middle of the epigine, the paired hoods below that, and the twisted copulatory ducts ( Platnick & Ewing 1995: fig. 81).

Description. Male and female described by Platnick & Ewing (1995).
