Correctly mating: on the actual female of Hibana talmina Brescovit and the description of H. labonita sp. n. (Araneae, Anyphaenidae)
Brescovit (1993), in the revision of the genus Hibana, described H. talmina, based on males from Venezuela, Colombia, Guyana and northern Brazil. Subsequently, Brescovit & Lise (1993) described its female, in an attempt to associate with the male, based on specimens collected in Dominica and Trinidad. Unfortunately, there was no justification for this mating. Recently Galvis et al. (2019) collected several couples of Hibana talmina in mangrove forests in some surrounding areas of Cartagena (Bolívar, Colombia), during a study of predation of crabs on these spiders. The detailed study of these couples showed that there was a wrong mating by Brescovit & Lise (1993) and this is corrected here. The original distribution is updated, with the exclusion of Dominica. The females previously assigned to H. talmina are treated here as Hibana labonita sp. nov., which is diagnosed in relation to the other species of Hibana.
