Abstract
The new genus Agnostopelma Pérez-Miles & Weinmann is proposed for the type species A. tota n. sp. and A. gardel n. sp. from Boyacá, Colombia. Agnostopelma build shelters under stones at high elevation. The new genus is unusual in lacking tarsal scopulae on its posterior legs and in having few labial cuspules and short leg tarsi in females.
