A new species of trapdoor spider of the genus Conothele Thorell, 1878 (Mygalomorphae: Halonoproctidae) from the Eastern Ghats, India

Mirza, Zeeshan A.

A new species of Conothele Thorell, 1878 is described from the Eastern Ghats based on two male specimens collected from Kanger Valley National Park, Chhattisgarh. This is the second species of the genus from India to be described on the basis of male specimens. The new species is similar to Conothele oglaei Sanap, Pawar, Joglekar & Khandekar, 2022 from the Western Ghats but differs from that species in leg supination and in the number of labial cuspules.
