Haradon 1985 Diagnosis.—Adult male unknown . A subspecies of P. shulovi differentiated by combination of : pectinal posterior basal length/maximum basal width ratio in adult females 1.5-1.8 (1.65 ± 0.10, n = 12); pectine length/dentate margin length ratio in adult females 1.3-1.4 (1.39 ± 0.04, n = 12) (Fig . 18); pectinal teeth in males (92%) 21-22, females (91%) 15-17; metasomal segment V with 7/8 or 8/8 ventrolateral setae (88% of specimens).
Comparisons: P. shulovi shulovi differs significantly in all four characters (see above).
Variation .—Pectinal tooth counts varied as in Table 3. Ventrolateral setae on metasomal segment V (sample n = 17) varied as follows: 6/7 (1), 7/7 (1), 7/8 (9), 8/8 (6). Pedipalpal primary denticles, excluding proximal row, total 26-31 (28 .65 ± 1 .40, n = 23) on fixed finger, 35-42 (38.12 ±1 .68, n = 24) on movable finger. The name "nevadae" refers to the state to which this subspecies is largely restricted.
