ECUADOR: 1 ♂, Riobamba ( SMF RI/473 - 32, examined by photograph).

Remarks

This species is morphologically similar to Ambatoiella vigilans Mello-Leitão, 1943  by: (1) coxa IV only apically visible in dorsal view, and (2) coda large, about one third the length of DS. Likewise, the type localities of the two species are only 50 km apart from each other and are in the same mountain range. There is a strong possibility that they are male and female of the same species; however, we decided to maintain them as separate species until further analyses have been carried out.
