Etymology. The specific name is a noun in apposition of the workplace of the authors, where the holotype was collected: the Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi Research Campus.

Diagnosis. Females of Tupirinna goeldi sp. nov. resemble those of T. platnicki sp. nov. by the interrupted anterior border of copulatory opening, but are readly recognized by the U-shaped posterior border of the copulatory opening ( Fig. 10E, F View FIGURE 10 ).

Sternum and borders yellow, with anterior lateral excavations brown. Legs yellow, with lateral surfaces of patellae black; proximal and distal regions of lateral surfaces of tibiae black. Abdomen dorsum yellow, with one pair of longitudinal black spots in cardiac area; in median region one pair of black spots on each side, followed by three black spots, subsequently one subrectangular black spot with one yellow spot inside on each side.
