TYPES: Male holotype GoogleMaps   and female allotype from Berlese and sifted leaf litter of a rainforest at an elevation of 1580 m at Reserve Speciale Manongarivo : 17.3 km 218° SW Antanamabo, 14°1.3′S, 48°25.1′E, Antsiranana Province (27 October 1998, B.L. Fisher) deposited in CASC ( PBI_OON 00036158). The species epithet, a noun in apposition, is taken from the Malagasy word for cat GoogleMaps   .

DIAGNOSIS: N. saka   can be differentiated from other Noideattella species   by the following combination of characters: habitus color orange-brown; sternum furrows with row of large pits, surface coarsely reticulate, microsculpture medially and in furrows (figs. 117, 133, 134); carapace pars cephalica and sides moderately to strongly granulate (figs. 115, 116, 131, 132); book lung covers large and elliptical (figs. 114, 115); leg femora bases orange-brown, other leg segments yellow.

DESCRIPTION: Male (PBI_OON 0003237): Total length 1.9. Cephalothorax: Carapace orange-brown. Sternum longer than wide, orange-brown, anterior margin with continuous transverse groove ( fig. 129 View Figs ). Mouthparts: Chelicerae, endites, and labium orange-brown. Cheliceral paturon inner margins with scattered setae and without modified setae (fig. 119). Abdomen: Ovoid. Dorsal scutum orange-brown, middle surface smooth, sides smooth. Postepigastric scutum orange-brown, long, semicircular. Male genital opening slightly protruded, epigastric scutum apodemes small, contiguous with the anterior book lung opening, not connected by a furrow. Posterior spiracles connected by a groove ( fig. 128 View Figs ). Legs: Yellow, femora and basal half of tibiae darkened. Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): tibiae: I, II p2-1-1; r2-1-1; IV p0-0-1; metatarsi: I, II p1-1-0; r1-1-0. l. Trichobothria on tibiae: I three, IV three, trichobothria base longitudinally narrowed, aperture internal texture gratelike, hood covered by numerous low, closely spaced ridges. Tarsal organ with two sensilla visible. Genitalia: Epigastric region with sperm pore situated at level of anterior spiracles ( fig. 128 View Figs ). Palp proximal segments pale orange; cymbium pale orange, with distal patch of setae; bulb pale orange (figs. 118, 120). Embolus dorsal and ventral lamellae with one apophysis each (figs. 137–140). Palp as in figures 135 and 136. Female (PBI_OON 0003237): Total length 2.1. As in male except as noted. Cephalothorax: Carapace pars cephalica and sides moderately to strongly granulate. Mouthparts: Cheliceral paturon inner margin lacks modified setae. Legs: Metatarsi III and IV weak ventral scopula absent. Leg spination (only surfaces bearing spines listed, all spines longer than segment width): tibiae: I, II p2-1-1; r2-1-1; IV p0-0-1; metatarsi: I, II p1-1-0; r1-1-0. Trichobothria of metatarsus: I one, IV one. Genitalia: Genital opening slit shaped ( fig. 127 View Figs ). Sperm sac secretory gland openings flat, extending over the receptaculum surface, GAp process shaped as a twisted tube ( figs. 123–126 View Figs ). Genitalia as in figures 121 and 122.

VARIATION: The carapace pars cephalica granulation varies in males: in most specimens cuticle is strongly granulate while in some the granulation is concentrated only at the sides. The distal modified setae on the paturon tip are larger in some specimens. Male leg I: tibial spines vary from five to four on the prolateral surface; leg II: tibial spine number varies from two to four on the prolateral surface and three to four on the retrolateral side. Shape and number of the embolar dorsal and ventral lamellae varies among individuals. Female leg I: tibial spine number varies from four to five; leg II: tibial spine number varies from four to five on the prolateral surface and three to four on the retrolateral side.
