Diagnosis. Males of S. elongatus sp. nov. can be recognized by the rostrated median apophysis and by the short, elliptic conductor (Figs 17 – 18); females by the elongate insemination ducts running mid-longitudinally and by the bilobular, digitiform spermathecae (Figs 20 – 21).
Etymology. The specific epithet, a nominative of an adjective, is derived from Latin (elongatus, - a, - um = elongate) and refers to the elongate insemination ducts of the female internal genitalia.
