Type material

Holotype female: Cozumel, Quintana Roo, México, 25-27.I.1984, V. Roth (CAS).

Etymology

The specific epithet comes from the name of the Mayan goddess Ix Chel for whom the type locality of Cozumel is sacred. It is to be treated as a noun in apposition.

Diagnosis

Females can be distinguished from other species by the median septum which is very narrow and somewhat diamond shaped, and the v-shaped internal ducts (Figs 51–52). Males unknown.

Abdomen:without terminal setal tufts. Pedipalp:claw with 13 teeth. Epigyne:very narrow median septum, somewhat diamond shaped, widening posteriorly, genital openings located at lateral margins of median septum; internally, ducts are v-shaped, located laterally, fertilization ducts located posteriorly, directed anterolaterally, small posterodorsal fold present, but does not cover any part of the internal ducts (Figs 51–52).

Natural history

No data.

Distribution

Known only from the type locality (Map 5).

Selenops debilis group (sensu Muma 1953) The following three descriptions are of the spiders that belong to what Muma (1953)[1] called the Selenops debilis group. These spiders were all described nearly 100 years ago, and the male and female types of Selenops debilis and Selenops actophilus are not from the same locality (though collecting from the same locality does not guarantee the same species as known in other species). Additionally, the three species have overlapping distributions in the desert southwest of North America and all three may be found in a single locality (Fig. 198, Map 7). Finally, there also appears to be genitalic variation away from the types, and several specimens have been found that share morphological features of more than one species. DNA data indicates at least three species in the region (Crews and Gillespie 2010[2]). Morphologically determining which specimen belongs to which species is a daunting task, and in some instances is not possible at the present time. Unfortunately recent collections did not contain adults. At this time, no taxonomic changes are made. Below, the types are re-described and locality data are included only when a specimen could, with reasonable certainty, be assigned to a particular species (i.e., when they did not differ from the type). Additional locality records are included below for members of the Selenops debilis group that cannot be sorted to species. Variations of the internal female copulatory organs are found in Figs 65–68. In order to sort out the variation and uncertainty in this group, to determine the correct number of species, and to learn more about biogeography and possible hybridization, this group is in need of revision. This will include the collection and analysis of molecular, morphometric, and behavioral data.
