Diagnosis. The new species is similar to H. himalayaensis Hu & Zhang, 1990 (Figs 10 – 13), H. cinerea Emerton, 1890 and H. arizonica Chamberlin & Ivie, 1942 in having tegular setea on male palp and two relative small copulatory openings of epigyne, but can be distinguished from these species by the stout RTA (Figs 14 B – C, 15 G – H), the fewer tegular setae (Figs 14 A, 15 F) of male palp and the posteriorly located copulatory openings (Figs 14 D, 16 E – F), the very short copulatory ducts between openings and bifurcation points and the spherical subspermathecae with relatively wide distance from each other (Figs 14 E, 16 G).
Etymology. The specific name is taken from the Latin adjective ‘ saccatus ’, meaning saccate, shaped like a pouch or sac and referring its saccate sub-spermathecae; adjective.
