Description of unknown sexes in two Pireneitega species from Tajikistan (Araneae: Agelenidae, Coelotinae)

Institute for Biological Problems of the North RAS, Portovaya Str. 18, Magadan, Russia.
Araneae Agelenidae Coelotinae


Pireneitega Kishida, 1955, with 35 species, is the second largest genus of Coelotinae (WSC 2017). The genus was recently revised in Tajikistan (Zhang & Marusik 2016). Among the six species found in the region, only one is known by both sexes. After the revision was published, Sergei Zonstein sent me a material containing the unknown female of Pireneitega kovblyuki Zhang et Marusik, 2016 and the unknown male of P. tyurai Zhang et Marusik, 2016. Both samples were collected in type localities. The goal of this paper is to provide illustrated description of unknown sexes of abovementioned species.
