California Norte, 1 mile N San Felipe, 6 June 1968 (M. A. Cazier). Depository: CAS,

Type No. 15058.

Diagnosis.-A subspecies ofP. borregoensis differentiated by: pectinal teeth in males

20-23, in females 13-15; metasomal segment V with seven to eight pairs of ventrolateral

setae (eighth seta, when present, occurs between and is offset from third and fourth setae

in normal series).

322 THE JOURNALO F ARACHHOLOGY

Comparisons: P. borregoensis borregoensis has 13-19 pectinal teeth in males, 8-12 in

females; usually eight evenly developedp airs of ventrolateral setae on metasomasl egment

V.

Etymology.-Then ame" actites" refers to the coastal region in which this subspecies

OCCURS.
