Type material

Holotype female. MADAGASCAR:Antsiranana: Réserve Spéciale d’Ambre, 3.5km 235°SW Sakaramy, 12°28'08"S, 49°14'32"E, 325m a.s.l., leg. Fisher-Griswold Arthropod Team, 26–31.I.2001 (sifted litter, tropical dry forest) (CAS, CASENT 9006738).

Paratypes

MADAGASCAR:Antsiranana: Forêt d’Orangea, 3.6km 128° SE Remena, 12°15'32"S, 49°22'29"E, 90m a.s.l., leg. Fisher, Griswold et al., 22–28.II.2001 (pitfall trap, littoral rainforest), 2♀ (CAS, CASENT 9007088); Same locality as holotype, leg. L.J. Boutin, 26–31.I.2001, 1♀ (CAS, CASENT 9000791). Toliara: 18km NNW Betroka, 23°09'48"S, 45°58'07"E, 825m a.s.l., leg. M. Ivie & A. Pollock, 9–14.XII.1994 (flight intercept traps), 1♂ (CAS, CASENT 9033123).

Other material examined

None.

Diagnosis

Females have similar spermathecal proportions to the continental Cambalida fulvipes but can be recognised by the narrower, distinctly coiled epigynal ridges (Fig. 84), which are broad and curved in Cambalida fulvipes (Fig. 80). The distal section of the male embolus is short and slightly curved towards the tip (Fig. 86).

Etymology

A patronym in honour of Charles Griswold, one of the collectors of the types, in recognition of his vast and significant collections of spiders on Madagascar.

Remark

The palp of the paratype male is greatly expanded and only the tegulum is illustrated here (Fig. 86). The cymbium has the distal setae characteristic of the genus, confirming the placement of this species and the occurrence of Cambalida on Madagascar.
