Taxonomic notes.

The type material, belonging to MNRJ, was lost in the fire that destroyed most of the arachnid collection (Kury, pers. comm.; Kury et al. 2018). The original description is poor for modern standards and it has no illustrations. However, the description allows to be diagnosed by: the presence of scutal area IV on dorsal scutum, coxa IV with one prodorsal apical bifid apophysis; trochanter IV with one retro-basal apophysis and three proapical apophyses. Sadocus asperatus   , S. dilatatus   , and S. ingens   have the scutal area IV in dorsal scutum and coxa IV with a bifid prodorsal apical apophysis; but none of them has three apical apophyses on trochanter IV. The only species with four scutal areas on the dorsal scutum and trochanter IV with three apical apophyses is S. funestus   , but the prodorsal apical apophysis on coxa IV is uniramous. Assuming that the description is correct, it implies that this is a valid species that we have not yet located among the material gathered for this revision of Sadocus   .
