Type material.

Female holotype presumed lost. NEOTYPE 1♀ designated here (NHMUK1071) from Amula (now Jalisco), Mexico, 20.6934 -103.356 7, 1550 m a.s.l., H.H. Smith 1898, NHMUK. The original type locality is simply listed as "Guanajuato, Mexico" in the original description which neighbors the locality of the neotype designated, Jalisco, Mexico. Given the carapace length to width ratio noted in Becker’s (1879) description and the illustration of the sternum ( Becker 1881, fig. 2b) we can be reasonably confident that designation of this specimen as the neotype is consistent with what is known of the originally described specimen.

Diagnosis.

Females of U. pustulosa   can be differentiated from U. pesiou   and U. rodeo   by having the carapace and sternum 1.2 × long as wide (roughly long as wide in other species) and from U. gabrieli   by having relatively more endite cuspules (43 vs 28).
