Etymology. The epithet is a noun in apposition that honors the fourth and last ruler and lord of Bacatá, southern Muisca confederation, and currently known as the Colombian capital Bogotá.

Diagnosis. Males of A. tisquesusa  sp. nov. are similar to those of A. pae  sp. nov by the shape of the RTA and the absence of the basal widening of the embolus. However, they can be distinguished from those by the longer and pointed RTA, a more rounded tegular lobe (TL), the presence of an evident embolar disc spur (EDS), and a shorter embolus ( Figs 13a –bView FIGURES 13, 22g –hView FIGURES 22).

OC black, 0.54 long. Anterior eye row 0.79 wide and posterior 0.76 wide. Sternum dark brown, 0.48 long, 0.40 wide. Labium dark brown, 0.13 long, 0.18 wide. Chelicerae dark brown with three retromarginal and two promarginal teeth. Palp dark brown with femur and patella covered by long white hairs, a visible prolateral sperm duct (SD), a long finger-like RTA, long embolic filament (EF), and a rounded tegular lobe (TL) ( Figs 13a –bView FIGURES 13, 22g –hView FIGURES 22). Legs 4312, all brown with yellowish disperse marks. Leg macrosetae: femur, I –II d 1 di; IV d 2 di; patella, III –IV r 1 me; tibia, I v 1-1 -2, p 1 di; II v 1-1 -1; III –IV v 1 -0- 1, p 0-1-1, r 0-1-1; metatarsus, I v 2-2; II v 2-2, p 1 di; III –IV v 1 -0-1, p 1-0-2, r 1-0-2. Abdomen brown with some transverse light brown stripes, and three irregular dorsal dark brown marks ( Fig. 18fView FIGURES 18).
