Diagnosis. This new species is similar to C. sbordonii (Brignoli, 1968), but can be distinguished by the palpal tibia armed with three digitiform apophyses prolaterally (Figs 1 C, 3 B) and eight strong spines rerolaterally (Figs 1 D, 3 A), and the palpal bulb with two weakly sclerotized median apophyses: one hook-shaped, one earthwormshaped (Figs 1 B – C, 3 B, 4 D) in the male.
Etymology. The specific name is derived from Latin “ lingua ”, meaning “ tongue ”, and refers to the tongueshaped conductor of the male palpal bulb; adjective.
