- Loxosceles mogote
Diagnosis. Male specimens of L. mogote sp. nov. resemble those of L. maisi sp. nov. and L. taino by the globose palpal tibiae in the male palp, but can be distinguished by the slender and curved embolus (Figs. 25 − 26). The females resemble those of L. caribbea and L. cubana by the shape of the spermathecae, but differ by the very long receptacles, of which the inner one is twice as large as the outer one, on a short base (Figs. 45 − 46).
Etymology. The specific name is a noun in apposition taken from the type locality.
