Figures 66 View FIGURES 59–69 , 86–89 View FIGURES 82–93

Etymology. The species is dedicated to our friend Pierre Oger (Waret L’Evêque, Belgium), eminent photographer of all species treated in this paper.

Diagnosis. Males are recognized by the tibial apophysis that is relatively wide, nearly straight, terminally truncate and with a small incision, while more curved or terminally pointed in the other species. Zodarion jeanclaudeledouxi   sp. nov. is closely related but differs by the longer recurved tip of the tibial apophysis.

Description. Measurements: Male (n=1): total length 4.1; carapace 3.12 long, 1.23 wide. Colour ( Fig. 66 View FIGURES 59–69 ): Carapace dark brown to black; femora black; other segments white to pale yellowish, tibiae laterally striked with brown; abdomen black, with 3 dorsal spots and oblique lateral white stripes. Eyes: AM=1 (0.14); AL=PL=0.77; PM=0.55; a=0.73; b=0.36; c=1.55; d=0.27; MOQ: AW=0.97PW; AW=0.72L.

Male palp ( Figs 86–89 View FIGURES 82–93 ): tibial apophysis elongated as in all species of this group, but proximal part nearly rectangular, more than 4 times longer than wide, terminally incised and curved in posterior direction; proximal part of median apophysis with triangular base, distal part a slender, pointed tooth; embolus slender, curved in anterior direction.

Female: Unknown.
