Types. BRAZIL. ♂ holotype, Fazenda Experimental da UFAM (02°39’30.85”S; 60°03’17.87”W), Manaus Amazonas, deposited in INPA 8598View Materials (not found, not examined).GoogleMaps 

Note. Although the type material of this species was not examined, the species is here diagnosed based on conspecific material taken near the type locality deposited in the Instituto Butantan collection.

Additional material examined. BRAZIL, Amazonas: Manaus, Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke (2°57’42”S; 59°55’40”W), 1♂, 04.IX.1991, H. Höfer & T. Gasnier leg. ( SMNK 3092View Materials); 1♂ 1♀, no data, Equipe SMNK leg. ( SMNK 8632View Materials, SMNK 8633View Materials); 1♀, 29.IV.1982, Equipe SMNK leg. ( SMNK 8630View Materials); 9♂, 8♀, no data, T. Gasnier leg. ( IBSP 167164–167175View Materials).GoogleMaps 

Diagnosis. Males of Masteria manauara  differ from those of other species in the slender and elongated embolus, with narrow base ( Fig. 23B –CView FIGURE 23). Females resemble those of M. petrunkevitchi  and M. sabrinae  n. sp. in the unilobed spermathecae, but differ from them in the long and coiled ducts ( Fig. 23E –FView FIGURE 23).

Description. Male and female described by Bertani et al. (2013: 438). The following characters are included: eyes disposition in MEV ( Fig. 23AView FIGURE 23). Male palp with short tibia, twice length of cymbium, with ventral depression and retrolateral group of 12̄14 short tactile setae ( Fig. 23CView FIGURE 23). Cymbium as long as wide, with three apical spines. Palpal bulb globose, embolus three to four times length of tegulum and very thin ( Fig. 23B –CView FIGURE 23). Female spermathecae unilobate, a dense glandular region ( Fig. 23E –FView FIGURE 23).

Distribution. Amazonas, Manaus ( Fig. 33View FIGURE 33).
