DESCRIPTION: SeeDeltshev etal. (2006: 711).

REMARKS: Contrary to its original placement in the Z. subterraneus -group, Z. balcanicus is a member of the Z. petrensis -group ( Senglet, 2004: 94, 111), as can be seen from the structure of the embolar base. A strong mesal apophysis and a posterior sickle-shaped lamina on the embolar base (Figs 11-12) are present. A week direct sinuous link to the embolus is another basic character of the group. Lateral additional pockets are present on the epigynum. The absence of a membranous or sclerotized embolar projection is an indication that this species belongs to a distinct sub-group.
