Abdomen (Figure 9): tergites 1-6 sclerotized, rectangular, with a distal row of setae, few setae mesally
and laterally, basal pair of trichoid sensilla, and scattered scales; tergites 7 and 8 sclerotized, elliptical, with only a basal pair of trichoid sensilla.
7), brush of setae absent mesally
near the mandibular base.
Claspers on sides of hypandrium, proximal halves slender, elongate, each bearing mesally
a directed outwards prong; distal halves outcurved, distally pointed, wider mesally
3) joined to the ends of clunium, sausage shaped, mesally
directed, with setae as illustrated.
All dorsal primary cephalic setae present (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)), blunt to slightly knobbed apically; two Vx setae present; labrum with two or three pairs of setae (one mesally
and two laterally); dorsum with several secondary setae: one long, indistinguishable from posterior primary setae, others very short, mesal to S6.
niger, resulting in the small (post)femoral process being directed mesally
organized as vLTG II, also with two parallel, broad grooves [the dorsal (ectal one) mesally
delimited by a strong ridge] but the boulderlike sculpture limited to the mesal part; the overhang distinct only basally.
Forewing with membrane almost hyaline, opaque, with brown spots on lower apex of pterostigma, mesally
and distally on cell R-M, distally on cells M, and diagonal from anterior half of areola postica to touch M; confluence of Cu2-A brown; pterostigma brown, distally with a hyaline, transverse band; veins brown (Fig.
I met there my old classmates Yussuf Mesally
and his wife Mariam Geagea (from a southern family different from that of Samir Geagea); we had barely exchanged greetings when my friend Walid Suleiman passed by followed by his beautiful wife Lola.
Chelicera: fondal teeth graded I-III-II-IV ectally and I, III, II mesally
; fixed finger teeth arranged PT-1-2-MT-1-AT; movable finger teeth arranged PT-1-2-AT (Figs.
28) 2.53 times longer than broad, spinulose mesally
, length 0.38 (0.30-0.41; n=3) mm; wide 0.15 (0.14-0.16; n=3) mm; dorsal surface with abundant posteriorly directed spinules; posterolateral processes divergent, with strong tubercles; length posterolateral processes 0.27 mm (n=3).
Sternite eight pilose, with shallow, broad posteromedial excavation; sternite nine moderately sclerotized, each arm divided in two portions, the basal one slender and mesally
directed, the apical one broader and posteriorly directed; sternite 10 with anterior margin deeply concave, with four to five pairs of large setae.
