Taxonomic remark Adult males of E. latus n. sp. are distinct from other Epanerchodus species based on the following
combination of characters: (1) broad paraterga (widths of pro- and metazonae 1.5–1.6 and 3.5–3.6 mm) (2) gonopodal femorite with a finger-shaped process distally and a semi-circular process medially; (3)
endomere tip unequally bifid; (4) endomere carrying a strongly curved subapical lobe (Fig. 2).
The new species is similar to E. stylotarseus (from caves in Guizhou, China), but is distinguished by (1)
caudolateral corners of paraterga being faintly acute-angled vs. strongly triangular in E. stylotarseus; (2) endomere ribbon-shaped, strongly curved (Fig. 2) vs. subspiniform and suberect in E. stylotarseus. [details]
