Abstract

This paper presents the description of the new species, Acrographinotus mitmaj (Opiliones, Gonyleptidae, Pachylinae). It can be easily distinguished from its congeners by: male femur IV long and spiny, devoid of the rows of tubercles and/or apophyses characteristic of other nominal species in the genus; further, A. mitmaj new species bears a less developed median apophysis on the 3rd free tergite (larger armature in other species). Penis morphology (especially concerning the ventral process of the stylus) agrees with the generic diagnosis. Known localities of the new species are restricted to the upper Río Cañete valley (Departamento Lima, central Peru).
