Gallon, R. C. & Engelbrecht, I. 2011: A new Pterinochilus species from South Africa (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Harpactirinae). Bull. Br. arachnol. Soc., 15 (4): 121–126

Abstract:
A new Southern African Pterinochilus species, P. lapalala sp. n., is described, illustrated and diagnosed from its congeners. The available distribution data suggest this species is limited to the Waterberg mountains of Limpopo Province and appears to demonstrate some degree of habitat specialisation. It represents the most southerly recorded Pterinochilus species.
