Diagnosis. Males of Catanduba flavohirta   comb. nov. differ from those of other species by the more rounded palpal bulb, shorter embolus, and an additional keel between PIK and PSK ( Figs 4 View FIGURE 4 A–C), and females differ by the presence of a greater number of small nodules on spermathecae ( Figs 4 View FIGURE 4 E, F).
