Variability in the spermathecal form of the three closely-related species ascribed to the Curtonotum cuthbertsoni species-group, cuthbertsoni complex, namely: C. cuthbertsoni Duda, C. saheliense Tsacas and C. simile Tsacas, is investigated. Pairs of spermathecae are illustrated photographically and their form compared intra- and interspecifically. The external form and shape are found to overlap in all three species. The spermathecae of C. simile are illustrated for the first time. While… Expand
