Massimo Olmi, Eduardo G. Virla


A new species, Anteon tucumanense, is described from San Miguel de Tucumán (Tucumán Province, Argentina). This new species can be distinguished from the related Neotropical species A. molle Olmi and A. parkeri Olmi by differences in segment 5 of the fore tarsus (distal part large and straight in A. tucumanense, slender and curved in the other 2 species). A key is provided for the determinations of the above species with an illustration of the female chela of the new species.
