Diagnosis. Tayshaneta sprousei may be separated from all Tayshaneta species by having the following combination of characters: male palpal tarsus undivided, tapering apically (Fig. 48 C); retrolateral tibial spine elongate, 0.5 x length of palpal tarsus; embolus oval, smooth along margins (E, Fig. 48 D); ventral sclerite short, less than the width of the embolus (Fig. 48 B, D-F).
Etymology. This species is named in honor of Peter Sprouse, fellow caver, biologist and collector of several Tayshaneta species in Texas caves.
