Zodarion trianguliferum Denis, 1952: 61   , fig. 6 (Holotype ♀, deposited in MNHN: MOROCCO: Marrakech-Safi   GoogleMaps , Marrakech, Tizi n’Test, 30°51’52’’N, 08°22’40’’W, 2100 m a.s.l., leg. L. Berland, 1939—examined).

Remarks. At first, the type material of Z. trianguliferum   was not found in the MNHN, but a tube containing one female and with a label corresponding with the name of the type locality of the species was present. The epigyne of the single specimen in the tube also corresponds with Denis’ figure and, as in similar cases, we therefore consider this to be the female holotype. Zodarion jeanclaudeledouxi   sp. nov., Z. ogeri   sp. nov. or Z. wesolowskae   sp. nov. are possibly the unknown male of Z. trianguliferum   .

Diagnosis. The species is recognized by the epigyne with a single antero-median pocket.
