Parabomis levanderii Kulczyński, 1901: 3   , 30, figs 25–27 (Holotype ³: ERITREA: Ghinda   GoogleMaps , 15°27’N, 39°05’E, leg. K.M. Levander, FMNH—examined).

Diagnosis. Males resemble those of P. martini   in colour and the shield-like abdomen, but in P. levanderi   the dorsum has two longitudinal series of black spots dorsally in depressions, which are absent in P. levanderi   . Parabomis levanderi   is the only male where the palp has the RTA two-pronged, with the one lobe longer and slightly hooked ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES 4–9 ).

Carapace chestnut brown, with dark patches laterally; posterior declivity yellow; clypeus mottled, with paler longitudinal infusions; carapace as wide as long, with deep posterior declivity; edge of declivity bearing numerous small tubercles; integument with scattered tubercles, each bearing club-shaped seta. Mouthparts and chelicerae paler than carapace. Sternum dark reddish brown, with narrow white margin, integument granulose. Legs: coxae dark; trochanters yellow; anterior femora black; patella yellow; anterior tibiae dark reddish brown; tarsi dark red; each segment distinctly rimmed with white.
