Tapinocyba affinis pyrenaea  Millidge, 1979


Strongly resembles T. affinis affinis, but can be distinguished by the form of the embolic division and the palpal tibial apophyses, which rather resemble T. ligurica. Also the tegulum is somewhat more prominent and of characteristic silvery grey colour.


Strongly resembles T. affinis affinis, and cannot be distinguished from this species with certainty by the genitalia.
