Abstract

Boliscus decipiens O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1899 from Sri Lanka is redescribed based on type and newly collected material. It is distinguished from congeners by the long, needle-shaped embolus that winds twice around the tegulum. In the light of this new information, an updated diagnosis for Boliscus tuberculatus (Simon, 1886) is provided. Further, the monotypic genus BoliscodesSimon, 1909 is synonymized with Boliscus (Boliscodes amaenulus = Boliscus tuberculatus) n. syn.
