Abstract:

Se describe de Costa Rica una especie nueva del género Phrynus Lamarck, 1801, la cual hab{\'ıa sido previamente confundida con Phrynus parvulus Pocock, 1902, debido a que presenta en el cuerpo cerdas claviformes; sin embargo, la especie nueva presenta 29 subartejos tibiales en la pata I (25 en P. parvulus), el tritosternón más ancho y los gonópodos femeninos contiguos (moderadamente separados en P. parvulus). A new species of the whip spider genus Phrynus Lamarck, 1801, is described from Costa Rica. It was previously misidentified as Phrynus parvulus Pocock, 1902, because its clubbed setae, but it has 29 instead 25 tibial articles on leg I, as well as wider tritosternum, and contiguous female gonopods. Taxonom{\'ıa: Phrynus pseudoparvulus sp. n. de Armas and Viquez 2002. CHECK: Journal published 2001 (end), but 2002 cited as species date elsewhere.
