Diagnosis Males of T. globularis sp. nov. closely resemble those of T. rothorum in having a relatively large conductor but can be easily distinguished by the globular shape of the tegulum (Figure 12 A – C); females also possess the large, oval epigynal atria but can be by the different shapes of insemination ducts and spermathecae (Figures 3 C, 12 D – F).
Etymology The specific epithet is derived from Latin (globularis, globulare = globular), and refers to the shape of the tegulum of male palp.
