On the genus Latonigena Simon (Araneae, Gnaphosidae): description of two new species, the female of L. santana,and new records

Nicolás López Carrión, Cristian Grismado


The taxonomy of the genus Latonigena Simon is updated after the study of the collection of the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (Buenos Aires). Two new species are described: L. pampa, n. sp., from Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, and L. pittieri, n. sp., from Aragua, Venezuela (the first record of a member of this genus from that country). Three species previously known from Brazil (L. turvo, L. lami, and L. santana) are newly reported from Argentina, and the female of the latter is here described for the first time. Zelotes zonatus (Holmberg) is considered nomen dubium.
