"The new genus Apopyllus is established for those gnaphosids, found from southern Mexico to Chile and Argentina, in which males have a folded retrolateral tibial apophysis, an incised cymbium, and an elongated embolus terminating in a retrolateral loop supported by a membranous, bifid tegular extension, and females have a pair of paramedian epigynal openings leading to highly convoluted ducts. Zelotes silvestrii (Simon), the type species, as well as Z. melanophorus Mello-Leitão, Z. pauper Mello-Leitão, Z. iheringi Mello-Leitão, Gytha argentina Mello-Leitão, and Herpyllus suavis Simon are transferred to Apopyllus. Two specific names, A. melanophorus and A. argentina, are newly synonymized with A. silvestrii. The male of A. iheringi is described for the first time. Four new species are described: A. malleco from Chile, A. huanuco from Peru, A. now from Curaçao, and A. ivieorum from Mexico"--P. [1].
