Introduction

DENDRYPHANTINES. Bulbus with hardened, opaque tegument, sometimes with ducts of spermophor emergin anterolaterally or partially translucent on prolateral side of bulbus. Embolus located on soft pad, anteriorly to bulbus, is short, often broadened, forked anteriorly or split into two sclerotized processes. Epigyne characteristic, with anterior openings, often in a semi crescent groove, copulatory ducts sclerotized, run posteriorly to spermatheca which usually form complicated entangled coils, or sclerotized body with internal convoluted chambers. Structure and conposition of the subfamily was extensively discussed by Maddison 1996, which is followed here.
REMARKS. Location and appearance of bent embolus in some W Hemisphere genera resembles NOTICIINAE, the difference seems to be location of embolus atop membranous pad in the former, on fleshy basis in the latter. Since existing drawings are not precise enough in the S American genera, that observation requires confirmation, potentially it can force deep changes in alignment of genera. It appears that there are no analogies in structure of spermathecae and ducts of these groups.

Transfer to DENDRYPHANTINES is based on two diagnostic drawings by Dr. W.P. Maddison publshed in in 1996 (see above), but unfortunately the crucial drawing of internal structures of epigyne was not yet published. Owing to kindness of Dr. Maddison I have seen that drawing in 1986, but I have no permission to display it.].
