Diagnosis. The female can be distinguished from all other Pireneitega species except Pireneitega tianchiensis (Wang et al., 1990) by having short receptacles and copulatory ducts. It can be distinguished from Pireneitega tianchiensis by the broad and long epigynal teeth, about 0.85 times as long as atrium (vs short and narrow epigynal teeth in Pireneitega tianchiensis, about 0.5 times as long as atrium) (Fig. 4 A-B; Wang et al. 1990: figs 84 - 85). Figure 4. Pireneitega tyurai sp. n., female holotype. A Epigyne, ventral B Vulva, dorsal C Habitus, dorsal D Habitus, dorsal E Habitus, ventral. Scale bars equal for C, D, E.
Etymology. The species is named after Sergei V. Tyura (Magadan, Russia) a friend of the junior author; noun (name) in genitive case.
Diagnosis. The male of P. tyurai can be separated from the sibling P. kovblyuki by having distinct abdominal pattern (Figs 1, 7) and smaller size (carapace 2.75 vs. 4.0 in sibling species). The two species can be easily separated by the size of palps (Figs 11 – 12). The male palp of P. tyurai has slightly swollen and short tibia (length / width ca. 1.6 vs. 2.2. in P. kovblyuki), has almost reduced patellar apophysis and shorter tip of cymbium (tip = length of the bulb vs. distinct patellar apophysis and bulb shorter than tip of cymbium in P. kovblyuki). In addition, the male of P. tyurai has only 2 dorsal spines on femora I – IV vs. 3 dorsal spines in the sibling species.
