Abstract

The first known males of the spider Plectreurys arida Gertsch are described from the xeric shrub habitats and houses of Baja California Sur, México. Males have a smaller carapace and abdomen than females. The length and spination formula of the first leg differ from females; the first legs are longer, and the chelicerae have stridulating grooves in males.
