Two New Species of spiders of the Genus Loxosceles from China
The present paper deals with two new species of the genus Loxosceles collected from Hunan Province,China.They are as follows: Loxosceles ophrasta sp.nov.and Loxosceles lacta sp. nov.1.Loxosceles aphrasta sp.nov.(figs.1 - 2) Holotype ♀, allotype♂, paratypes 3 ♀♀, Ling County(26°30'N,113°42'E).Hnnan Province, August,1982.Holotype (female) total length 5.80mm.Cephalothorax 2.20X1.90, abdomen 3.60x 2.50.Allotype (male) total length 5.60mm.Cephalothorax 2.50x 2.30, abdomen 3.50 X 2.10.This new species is similar to Loxosceles laeds (Nicolet,1849),but the winding shape of the copulatory tubes and distal part of the palp are diferent. By these we can distinguished it from L. laeta.2. Loxosceles lacta sp.nov.(figs.3-4)Holotype ♀,allotype ♂,Changsha City(28°12'N,112°54'E).Holotype(female) total length 6.80mm.Cephalothorax 3.00X2.50. abdomen3.80x 2.50,Allotype(male) total lenght 4.00mm.Cephalothorax 2.00X 1.80, abdomen2.10 X 2.50.The epigynum of this new species is similar to Loxosceles rufescens (Dufour,1820),but we can be distinguished it from the latter by the structures of the epigynum and the male palp.
