The monotypic genus Mystes Bristowe, 1938, and its type species, M. oonopiformis Bristowe, 1938, are redescribed based on the neotype male (designated here) and several females. The male is described for the first time and the female endogyne is illustrated for the first time. Morphological analysis reveals that the genus belongs to the Prithinae and is close to the Australian genera Wandella Gray, 1994 and Yardiella Gray, 1994. As the name Mystes is preoccupied by Mystes Champion, 1895 (Coleoptera: Melandryidae), we propose Labahitha nom.n. as a replacement name.
|Translated title of the contribution||Labahitha nom.N., a replacement name for mystes bristowe, 1938, with a redescription of the type species (Aranei: Filistatidae): Filistatidae)|
