Etymology. The species epithet is a noun in apposition taken from the type locality.

Diagnosis. Males resemble those of M. colombiensis   , M. downeyi   , M. lewisi   , M. yacambu   n. sp., M. amarumayu   n. sp. and M. aguaruna   n. sp. in the piriform palpal bulb. They differ from those of M. colombiensis   , M. downeyi   , M. lewisi   , M. yacambu   n. sp. and M. aguaruna   n. sp. in the embolus being slightly coiled and narrowed subdistally ( Fig. 18B–C View FIGURE 18 ); from M. amarumayu   n. sp. in having a basal spine on metatarsus I and large P2 on tibia I ( Figs 18D View FIGURE 18 , 30C View FIGURE 30 ). Females are similar to those of Masteria colombiensis   , M. amarumayu   n. sp. and M. aguaruna   n. sp. in the bilobed spermathecae, with ectal lobe conical and high with large basal glands. Females differ from those of M. colombiensis   n. sp. in the ental lobe having an elongated duct; from M. amarumayu   n. sp. in the ectal lobe being shorter and apically thicker; and from M. aguaruna   n. sp. in the smaller ental lobe ( Fig. 18E–F View FIGURE 18 ).
