Material examined.

2♂2♀: CHINA, Yunnan: Menglun town: Xishuangbanna Nature Reserve, 21°57.445'N, 101°12.997'E, elevation ca 744 m, 1.-15.03.2007, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, pitfall traps; 1♀, 21°57.669'N, 101°12.893'E, elevation ca 790 m, 19.-25.10.2006, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, pitfall traps; 2♀, 21°57.445'N, 101°12.997'E, elevation ca 744 m, 16.-24.11.2006, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, pitfall traps; 1♂, 21°57.669'N, 101°12.893'E, elevation ca 790 m, 1.-9.12.2006, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, pitfall traps; 1♂, 21°57.445'N, 101°12.997'E, elevation ca 744 m, 5.-12.01.2007, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, hand-collecting; 3♂2♀, 21°57.445'N, 101°12.997'E, elevation ca 744 m, 16.-28.02.2007, primary tropical seasonal rain forest, pitfall traps.

Diagnosis.

The male can be diagnosed by the small dorsal projection of embolic fig ( Tanasevitch 2014b: fig. 16; Fig. 5A, D), two finger-like extensions of distal suprategular apophysis (Fig. 5 C–D), and the slimmer embolus forming two coils (Fig. 5C). It differs from Batueta floralis  Tu & Li, 2006 by the shape of paracymbium: ‘U’ -shaped, with a blunt distal end in Batueta floralis  ( Tu and Li 2006: fig. 1B), whereas ‘J’ -shaped, with a small projection at the paracymbium in Batueta paracymbialis  ( Tanasevitch 2014b: fig. 17; Fig. 5B). The female is recognized by the short parmula and copulatory ducts ( Tanasevitch 2014b: figs 21-22; Fig. 7 A–C).

Description.

Well described by Tanasevitch (2014b).
