Abstract

The female of Ersachus erichosonianus Sharp is described for the first time, on the basis of a specimen collected in a fragment of cloud forest in central Veracruz, Mexico. A diagnosis for the separation of this species from other members of the genus in Mexico and Central America is given. Illustrations of habitus, dorsal vestiture, abdomen, and genitalia are provided, as well as data on the habitat. This is the first finding of this species since its description in 1902.
