Civizelotes caucasius -group

DEFINITION: Posterior eye row procurved. Ƌ pedipalp: Strong elongated embolar radix (Fig. 67) terminating in a bowl. Embolar base containing the sperm duct (Fig. 68), reaching straight to the radix bowl. Relict terminal apophysis with a posterior sclerite without distinct connection. Embolus long, curled right (clockwise) on left palp. Atrium in anterior epigynal sector.

FIGS 58-66

Civizelotes ibericus n. sp. (58-62) Left male palp. (58) Prolateral view. (59) Ventral view. (60) Retrolateral view. (61) Cymbium removed, dorsal view. (62) Id., apical view. (63) Vulva, ventral view. (64) Id., dorsal view. (65) Id., median-lateral view. (66) Epigynum. Bold lines indicate epigynal folds. Scale 0.2 mm.

SPECIESINCLUDED: C. caucasius (L. Koch, 1866) , C. sostitialis ( Levy, 1998) .

REMARKS: The structure of the pedipalp (Figs 65-66), with a long embolar radix and a developed embolar base, excludes these species from the Civizelotes gracilis - group. The study of copulatory mechanism ( Senglet, 2004: 95, figs 26-31) shows that the embolar base and radix are penetrating to mid-length of the vulva; radix not figured, but radix bowl visible at base of embolus ( Senglet, 2004: fig. 31).
