Tomosvaryella galapagensis Aczél, 1948: 25   ; 1952: 248; Hardy, 1965b: 64; Ale-Rocha, 1992b: 351, figs 1–8; Ale-Rocha, 1996: 172; Ale-Rocha & Souza 2011: 297, figs 13, 55–57; Rodriguez & Rafael 2012: 30, 33.

Diagnosis. Male. Postcranium brown, dorsally pruinose, ventrally grayish-pruinose ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–10 ). Hind trochanter with yellow-setose protuberance ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES 1–10 ). Tergites and sternites 6 and 7 as in Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1–10 . Surstyli similar in shape, with hooked-tip, having dorso-basal protuberance, right surstylus slightly shorter ( Figs 4–5 View FIGURES 1–10 ), both surstyli with tips downward-directed, mainly the left one ( Figs 6–7 View FIGURES 1–10 ). Phallic guide with apex simple, angled at about 45 degrees ( Fig. 8 View FIGURES 1–10 ). Phallus with one ejaculatory duct with two spines, one duct with a single spine and one duct without spine. Ejaculatory apodeme somewhat sandal-shaped, darker near base, rounded on both ends ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES 1–10 ). Gonopods subsymmetrical ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 1–10 ).

Material examined. COLOMBIA: Boyacá, SFF[Santuario de Fauna y Flora] Iguaque, Cabaña Chaina , 5º25’N – 73º27’W, 2600 m [eters], Malaise, 31.viii.–16.ix.2001, A. Roberto, “M2066” (1♂, LEUA) (photographed specimen); “ idem, 01–14.feb[ii].2001”, “M1271” (1♂, IAvH). GoogleMaps  

Geographical distribution. Ecuador, Galapagos islands; Mexico, Baja California ( Rodriguez & Rafael 2012); Colombia (new record) ( Fig. 132 View FIGURE 132 ).

Habitat. The specimens were collected with Malaise trap at the ground level at the Santuario de Fauna y Flora Iguaque reserve, where the vegetation is composed of forest typical of the mountain range of the Northeast region of Colombia.

Comments. Specimens collected are similar to the holotype illustrated by Ale-Rocha (1992), differing only by the left surstylus, which has the apex more truncated when examined in lateral view.
