dc.description.abstract "A cladogram, key, diagnoses, descriptions, locality records, maps, illustrations, and scanning electron micrographs are provided for the six known species of Apodrassodes. Except for a disjunct and probably introduced population in Mexico and Central America, the genus is apparently restricted to temperate South America. Drassodes araucanius Chamberlin, Scotophaeus guatemalensis F.O.P.-Cambridge, Scotophaeus quilpuensis Simon, and Syrisca conjuncta (Banks) are transferred to Apodrassodes. Three specific names are newly synonymized: A. conjuncta, A. singularis Vellard, and A. rouxi (Mello-Leitão), all with A. guatemalensis. The males of A. araucanius and A. quilpuensis are described for the first time. Three new species are described from Chile and adjacent Argentina"--P. [1]. en_US
