Ammotrechula wasbaueri Muma 1962

Ammotrechula wasbaueri Muma, 1962: 43-44, figs 54-55; Muma, 1970a: 55; Muma, 1976: 28;  Brookhart and Brookhart, 2006: 325.

HOLOTYPE: .

Original description:
Muma, 1962: 43-44, figs 54-55:

MALES: Total length, 8.0 to 11.0 mm. Chelicerae 0.6 to 0.9 mm. wide and 2.1 to 2.7 mm. long. Propeltidium 0.7 to 1.6 mm. wide and 0.8 to 1.7 mm. long. Holotype larger.  Color and markings in alcohol pale yellow, with dusky purplish markings similar to those on A. pilosa except that legs and palpi pale on coxae, trochanters, and bases of femora; pale stripes on peltidia and abdominal sclerites not well defined.  Dentition somewhat atypical (fig. 54, 55). Fixed finger elongate and attenuated beyond reduced, spur-like, anterior and medial teeth. Intermediate tooth of movable finger minute. Dental group of movable finger occupying slightly more than one-third of length of finger. Flagellum spatulate, fringed at margins near distal end, curled mesially to cover most of mesial surface and attached to finger in front of first fondal tooth of mesial row.  Palpi with usual clothing of long and short hairs and scattered cylinder bristles on tarsi, metatarsi, and tibiae. Metatarsi also provided apically with one single and two pairs of strong, cylindrical spines.  Chelicerae nearly four times as wide as long. Propeltidium slightly longer than wide. Eyes separated by slightly more than one diameter.

DIAGNOSIS: The cheliceral profile and possession of two paired and one unpaired cylindrical spines on the palpal metatarsus identify the species.
