Figures 285–312, 375

TYPES: Male holotype from Berlese and sifted leaf litter of a spiny forest at an elevation of 25 m at Parc National de Tsimanampetsotsa, 6.7 km 130° SE Efoetse, 32.0 km 175° S Beheloka , 24°6′2″S, 43°45′36″E, Toliara Province, 18–22 March 2002, Fisher-Griswold Arthropod Team, deposited in CASC ( PBI _ OON 00003340). The species epithet, a noun in apposition, is taken for the Malagasy word for a pool, pond, or lake   .

DIAGNOSIS: N. farihy   can be differentiated from other Noideattella species   by the following combination of characters: habitus dark red-brown; carapace with surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica and sides granulate (figs. 301, 302); sternum microsculpture finely reticulate, distributed in all surfaces (figs. 289, 303, 304); embolus with a flat curved apophysis at its base (figs. 290, 292); book lung covers large and elliptical (figs. 286, 287).

DESCRIPTION: Male (PBI_OON 0003533): Total length 2.1. Cephalothorax: Carapace dark red-brown. Sternum as long as wide, dark red-brown, furrow with rows of small pits, surface finely reticulate, without pits, with microsculpture medially and in furrows, anterior margin with interrupted transverse groove (figs. 303–305). Mouthparts: Chelicerae, endites, and labium dark red-brown, paturon inner margin with scattered setae (fig. 291). Abdomen: Ovoid. Dorsal scutum dark red-brown, middle surface smooth, sides reticulate. Postepigastric scutum dark red-brown, long, semicircular, covering nearly full length of abdomen (figs. 285–287). Legs: Pale orange, without color pattern. Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): tibiae: I, II p2-1-1; r1-1-1; metatarsi: I, II p1-1-0; r1-1-0. Genitalia: Epigastric region with sperm pore situated at level of anterior spiracles (fig. 295). Palp proximal segments pale orange; cymbium pale orange, without distal patch of setae; bulb pale orange (figs. 290, 292). Embolus dorsal lamella with at least three distal apophyses, ventral lamella with at least two apophyses (figs. 309–312). Palp as in figures 307 and 308. Female (PBI_OON 0003569): Total length 2.3. As in male except as noted. Legs: Leg spination (only Figs. 285–294. Noideattella farihy   , new species. 285. Habitus male, dorsal view. 286. Same, ventral view. 287. Same, lateral view. 288.

surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): tibiae: I, II p2-1-1; r1-1-1; metatarsi: I, II p1-1-0; r1-1-0. Genitalia: Genital opening slit shaped (fig. 296). Sperm sac secretory gland openings pointed, extending all over the receptaculum posterior surface. GAp process shaped as a twisted tube (figs. 297–300). Genitalia as in figures 293 and 294.
