Reductoonops sasaima   , new species ( figs. 324, 325, 327–340 View FIGURES 324–338. 324, 327–338 View FIGURES 339–352. 339, 340 )

TYPES: Male holotype, male paratype, female allotype, and two female paratypes taken under damp leaf mold at Finca Bella Vista, near Sasaima, Cundinamarca, Colombia (May 5, 1965; P. Craig), deposited in CAS (PBI_ OON 35777 View Materials )   .

DIAGNOSIS: Males can be recognized by the enlarged, anteroventrally directed lobe at the tip of the endites ( figs. 328, 329 View FIGURES 324–338. 324, 327–338 ) and the 180° bend at the base of the embolus ( figs. 335–338 View FIGURES 324–338. 324, 327–338 ); females resemble those of R. leticia   in having a basally enlarged, triangular anterior genital process, but its tip has shorter lateral projections than in that species ( figs. 339, 340 View FIGURES 339–352. 339, 340 ).

MALE (PBI_ OON 35777 View Materials , figs. 324, 327–338 View FIGURES 324–338. 324, 327–338 ): Total length 0.92. Surface of elevated portion of pars cephalica smooth. Eyes two; ALE touching. Sternum with anterior channels, surface smooth, without pits, microsculpture absent; setae densest laterally. Labium anterior margin deeply incised. Endite tip with enlarged, anteroventrally directed lobe. Base of embolus making 180° turn; cymbium not fused with bulb.

FEMALE (PBI_ OON 35777 View Materials , figs. 325 View FIGURES 324–338. 324, 327–338 , 339, 340 View FIGURES 339–352. 339, 340 ): Total length 1.17. Labium anterior margin indented at middle. Anterior genitalic process enlarged, basally widened, triangular, tip with short lateral projections, dorsal surface apparently with several glandular ducts.

OTHER MATERIAL EXAMINED: None.

DISTRIBUTION: Colombia (Cundinamarca).
