OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED: GREECE, Peloponnesus, Arcadia, Mt Mainalos , refuge, stones, 37°39'N 22°16'E; 2 Ƌ, 7 ♀ (last moults of Ƌ 20.07 and 22.08, of 2 ♀ 26.08 and 07.09.2011); 25.05.2011 GoogleMaps .

DESCRIPTION: Large dark species. Prosoma dark brown, with black bristles. Opisthosoma black, covered with greyish adpressed hairs and black bristles. Legs dark brown; tarsi feebly lightened. Posterior eye row straight to slightly recurved

Ƌ: Total length 5.20. Prosoma: 2.25 long, 1.85 wide, 0.90 wide at level of posterior eyes. Eye sizes and interdistances: AME 0.06, ALE 0.12, PME 0.07, PLE 0.12; AME-AME 0.06, AME-ALE 0.01, PME-PME 0.04, PME-PLE 0.07, ALE-PLE 0.07. MOQ length 0.26, front width 0.40, back width 0.42. Clypeus: 0.10 from AME, 0.08 from ALE. Pedipalp (Figs 3-7): Retrolateral tibial apophysis 2 times dorsal length of tibia. Patella dorsally longer than tibia. Tibia wider than long. Embolar base without connection to embolus, carrying a conical apical projection attached to embolar haematodocha, and a prolateral guide to embolus. Small hook of median apophysis half concealed by embolus. Very large, one-turn-coiled embolus reaching below proximal quarter of tegulum length. Posterior sclerite of terminal apophysis attached to base of embolar radix (Fig. 3), the latter linked through an intermediary junction to posterior tegular base. Tarsi I, II scopulate, metatarsi I, II only in apical 2/3. Leg spination: Tibiae III, r112; metatarsi III, VI v221. Scutum occupying 1/3 of opisthosoma length.
