Trabea ornatipalpis

General description: 

"The epigynum of the female in SAM corresponds to that of T. ornatipalpis of which only females were known from Natal. These were matched with one male from Table Mountain in the Cape Province. The female from Table Mountain suggests that Russell-Smith (1982) was correct when matching males and females originally collected from very different localities." Alderweireldt, 1999
