Abstract

Toxoniella, a new genus of Gallieniellidae is described from forest remnants on the Taita Hills in Kenya. The genus is characterized by legs with well developed spination, the male palp with posterior tegular extension not containing the spermduct and the epigyne with a single central frontal ledge, double spermathecae, and cul de sac tubes in front. Two new species, both known from males and females, are recognized: T. taitensis and T. rogoae. The position of the genus is discussed in the light of the presence of enlarged piriform gland spigots on the ALS in the male and its close relationship to Drassodella supported by a number of synapomorphies.
