Schismatothele benedettii, a new species of tarantula from amazonic Brazil (Araneae, Theraphosidae)

2011

We describe and figure a new species of the genus Schismatothele Karsch, 1879 from Brazil, Amazonas state,to the north of Manaus. This species comprises the firstmale known for the genus and the first report of the genus Schismatothele for Brazil. The new species differs from theonly known species, Schismatothele lineata Karsch, 1879 inthe morphology of the spermathecae in which the dorsalreceptacles have internal tubular digitiform lobules.
