Taxonavigation

Ordo: Araneae
Familia: Corinnidae
Genus: Cambalida

Name

Cambalida unica Haddad, 2012 sp. n.Wikispecies linkZooBank linkPensoft Profile

Type material

Holotype female, together with 1 paratype female. CAMEROON: Chabal Mbabo, SW slope, 07°25'N, 12°49'E, 1250m a.s.l., leg. Bosmans & Van Stalle, 9.IV.1983 (grassland) (MRAC 162219).

Other material examined

None.

Diagnosis

Females of this species can be easily recognised by the sharply bent lateral margins of the ST II (Figs 93, 94).

Etymology

The species name is Latin for “unique”.

Remark

The holotype is the smaller of the two females in the vial containing the types and has the epigyne dissected.

Female

(holotype, Chabal Mbabo, MRAC 162219). Measurements: CL 2.68, CW 1.98, AL 3.50, AW 2.45, TL 5.85 (5.85–6.00), FL 0.21, SL 1.17, SW 1.15, AME–AME 0.08, AME–ALE 0.02, ALE–ALE 0.34, PME–PME 0.13, PME–PLE 0.06, PLE–PLE 0.55, PERW 0.81, MOQAW 0.33, MOQPW 0.46, MOQL 0.44.
Length of leg segments (sequence from femur to tarsus, and total): I 1.88 + 0.81 + 1.48 + 1.27 + 0.86 = 6.30; II 1.71 + 0.78 + 1.23 + 1.14 + 0.75 = 5.61; III 1.59 + 0.75 + 1.11 + 1.25 + 0.63 = 5.33; IV 2.25 + 0.93 + 1.95 + 2.10 + 0.85 = 8.08.
Carapace deep red-brown, clypeus brown, eye region darker; faint black striae radia- ting from fovea towards palps and leg coxae; surface finely granulate, densely covered in white plumose setae. AER procurved, ALE much larger than AME; AME separated by distance approximately 3∕5 their diameter, AME separated from ALE by 1∕5 AME diameter; clypeus height equal to 1½ AME diameter; PER procurved, PLE slightly larger than PME; PME separated by distance slightly less than ¾ their diameter, PME separated from PLE by distance slightly less than ⅓ PME diameter; CW:PERW = 2.44:1. Chelicerae brown with faint black mottling on anterior surface, yellow-orange along prolateral distal margin; three teeth on promargin, median tooth largest, distal tooth smallest, situated closest to median tooth; two teeth on retromargin, distal tooth slightly smaller than proximal tooth, closer to fang base than promarginal teeth; endites yellow-brown, cream prolaterally; labium orange-brown, cream distally; sternum orange with brown mottling. Legs finely granulate; femora I–IV dark brown, yellow dorsally at distal end; patellae I–IV yellow-brown, with dark brown mottling laterally; tibiae I and II yellow-brown, with sparse dark brown mottling laterally; tibiae III and IV dark brown, with paired pale brown stripes dorsally, distal ends bright yellow; metatarsi I and II yellow-brown, with sparse dark brown mottling laterally; metatarsi III and IV dark brown, yellow at proximal and distal ends; tarsi I and II yellow-brown, III and IV yellow. Leg spination: femora: I pl 1 do 3, II do 3, III pl 2 do 3 rl 1, IV pl 1 do 3 rl 1; patellae with do 1 long distal seta; tibiae: I plv 1 rlv 1, II plv 1 rlv 1, III pl 2 do 1 rl 2 plv 2 rlv 1 vt 2, IV pl 2 do 1 rl 2 plv 2 rlv 1 vt 2; metatarsi: I plv 2 rlv 2, II plv 2 rlv 2, III pl 3 rl 3 plv 2 rlv 2 vt 3, IV pl 3 rl 3 plv 2 rlv 2 vt 3. Palpal segments brown, tarsi orange-brown. Palpal spination: femora do 2, patellae pl 1 do 2, tibiae pl 1 do 1 plv 1, tarsi pl 1 plv 3 rlv 1. Abdomen mottled dark grey, with orange-brown dorsal scutum extending ¼ abdomen length; venter mottled pale grey, darker towards spinnerets, epigastric sclerite orange-brown and inframamillary sclerite yellow-brown. Epigyne with lateral copulatory openings situated within small round epigynal ridges (Fig. 93); copulatory ducts initially directed dorsally, looping transversely then anteriorly, entering ST II posterolaterally; ST II somewhat triangular, with sharply angled lateral margins, joined broadly to kidney-shaped posterior ST I (Fig. 94).

Male

Unknown.

Distribution

Only known from the type locality (Fig. 95).
