Biology. Hahnia senaria sp. nov. is a dominant species in Xishuangbanna, in natural habitats and in plantations. All specimens were collected from August 2006 to June 2007. The months with largest abundances are November 2006 (40 females and 42 males) and May 2007 (88 females and 49 males). Apparently, two generations occurs throughout a year.
Diagnosis. The new species can be easily distinguished from other Hahnia species by the very small body with 6 eyes and shallow body color (Figs 22 A – C, 23 A – C), the midway located spiracle, the absence of stridulatory files on chelicerae, the short embolus and very short cymbial furrow of male palp (Figs 21 A – D, 22 D – F), the spherical sub-spermathecae of female epigyne (Figs 21 F, 23 E).
Etymology. The specific name is taken from the Latin word ‘ senarius ’, meaning consisting of six each, referring to the presence of six eyes of this new species; adjective.
