Abstract

SILVA, Estevam L. C. da  and  LISE, Arno A.. Description of a new species of the spider genus Syntrechalea (Araneae: Lycosoidea: Trechaleidae) from Colombia. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 2008, vol.25, n.3, pp. 495-498. ISSN 0101-8175.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81752008000300014.

A new species of the spider genus Syntrechalea F.O.P.-Cambridge, 1902 is described and illustrated based on material collected in Loreto Mocagua, Colombia. Representatives of this spider genus exhibit an arboreal foraging behavior and are distinguished from the other genera of Trechaleidae by the flattened carapace, long legs and flexible metatarsi and tarsi. New records on the distribution of Syntrechalea tenuis F.O.P.Cambridge, 1902 in Colombia are presented.

Keywords : Distribution; Neotropical region; spiders; taxonomy.
