Psecas? (new genus?) sp + tgeg20 BR - Amazonas - Coari - Rio Urucu - Luck 09 - 11-18/maio/1991 - col M. G. Oliveira Comment: embolus v. long, half encircling bulbus, bulbus turned 180 degrees, cheliceral tooth unusual fissidentati with asymetrical crown - one cone very long. Other characters seem to fit Psecas, note shape of tibial apophysis. Tip of embolus slightly broadened - presumably plugging female copulatory opening after copulation. Conclusion - new species (possibly whole group of species) within Psecas. J. Proszynski, 15. X. 2005
