Selenops ivohibe   sp. nov. ( Figs. 5–6 View FIGURES 5–8. 5–6 , Fig. 9 View FIGURES 9 ­Map 1)

Type. Female holotype and two female paratypes from Madagascar, Ivohibe , 16°06´S 49°08´E, VII/1970 GoogleMaps   , A. Lambillon Col., deposited in MRAC 142.781 View Materials   .

Etymology. The specific epithet refers to the type locality.

Diagnosis. The form of the middle field of the epigynum ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 5–8. 5–6 ) of S. ivohibe   sp. nov., is almost similar to that of S. annulatus Simon   ( Corronca 2002:8, Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1–4. 1–2 ), but the form of the big epigynal pockets ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 5–8. 5–6 ) and the separation between the lateral lobes of the epigynum are characteristic, as are the particular form of the spermathecae ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 5–8. 5–6 ).

Female (holotype). Total length 7.80. Prosoma 3.38 long, 3.00 wide. Opisthosoma

4.43 long, 2.63 wide. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.14, ALE 0.09, PME 0.19, PLE 0.23, AME–AME 0.20, AME–ALE 0.42, AME–PME 0.12, PME–PME 0.65, PME– PLE 0.39, PLE–PLE 1.54, ALE–ALE 1.31. Leg formula 2431. Leg measurements: I Fe 3.54, Pat+Tib 4.37, Mt 3.00, Ta 1.14, total 12.05; II 4.26, 4.88, 3.00, 1.14, total 13.28; III 4.26, 4.58, 2.91, 1.14, total 12.89; IV 4.26, 4.78, 2.81, 1.14, total 12.99.
