Zodarion abnorme Denis, 1952  

Zodarion abnorme Denis, 1952: 62   , fig. 12 (Holotype ♀: MOROCCO: Fès-Meknès , Timahdit, Forêt d’Adim, 33°03’35”N, 04°58’26”W—not examined, unavailable).

Remarks. The holotype of Z. abnorme   , described from Morocco, Forêt d’Adim, could not be traced in the MNHN, where Denis normally deposited his species. It is a very small species (1.8 mm), only known from the female. Denis (1952) gave the name abnorme   by the “abnormal” shape of the eyes, the posterior lateral ones being “indistinct”. There are thus only 6 eyes, which is typical for the members of the genus Trygetus Simon, 1882   . The small size of the species also corresponds with the small size of the members of the genus Trygetus   . Until new topotypic material is collected, we leave the species in the genus Zodarion   .

Distribution. Only known from the type locality in Morocco (Map 3).
