Ariadna pusilla ( Nicolet 1849)   , comb. nov.

Segestria pusilla Nicolet, 1849: 345   , pl. 2, fig. 9 (Holotype 1 juv. from Chile, should be deposited in the MNHN, lost).

Remarks. Brignoli (1976) provided comments on S. pusilla   , writing that “the only available figure […] is of a female, more similar to Ariadna   than to Segestria   ”. Nicolet (1849) ’s description and drawing of S. pusilla   suggests that he based his new species on a juvenile of Ariadna   (the labium resembles that of Ariadna   species, being short and wide and narrowed at each end; see Beatty 1970). S. pusilla   is here transferred to the genus Ariadna   as a nomen dubium.
