Lapsias estebanensis Simon, 1900   Figs 12-18 View Figures 12–18

Type material.

In MNHN, 2 males from La Cumbre, San Esteban, Carabobo State, Venezuela, with label "21196 Laps. estebanensis   E.S., S. Esteban! La Cumbre!". Galiano (1963) designated one male as lectotype, which I presume to be that in a separate microvial with her label "Typus? M.E. Galiano II 1959". The type vial also has a recent label "det Szűts 0015". Because the old handwritten label was fragile and fragmenting, I made a copy, which I added to the type vial.

Notes.

This is the most robust of the four Venezuelan species, with males having enlarged chelicerae ( Figs 15-17 View Figures 12–18 ). The retromarginal tooth closest the fang is larger and curved ( Fig. 18 View Figures 12–18 ). The palp bears a close resemblance to that of L. tovarensis   , but differs in the shorter, straighter embolus and distinctly larger apophysis (c? in Fig. 14 View Figures 12–18 ) accompanying the embolus.
