scientific name

Ariadna Audouin, 1826
status

 

Genus Ariadna Audouin, 1826  

Pylarus   Hentz, 1842 (synonymised in Beatty 1970)

Macedonia   Hogg, 1900 (synonymised in Rainbow 1911)

Segestriella   Purcell, 1904 (synonymised in Beatty 1970).

Remarks.

Ariadna   is distinguished from other segestriid genera by having a straight to slightly recurved posterior eye row (Figs 2A, 3A), a lateral transverse ridge basally on the chelicerae (Fig. 2A; Giroti and Brescovit 2018), a labrum extending past the labium (Figs 2B, 5B; Giroti and Brescovit 2018), and chelicerae with three promarginal and one retromarginal teeth ( Beatty 1970). It is distinguished from Citharoceps   by the lack of stridulatory organ, females lacking a median flap on the interpulmonary fold and by the length of the labium-sternum junction, which is longer than the length of the endite-sternum junction in Citharoceps   ( Giroti and Brescovit 2018).

Note.

Holotypes of A. octospinata   , mature female ( QM W2119) and A. montana   , mature female ( SAM NN179) were examined.
