Dipoena cidae  new species

( Figures 1–5View FIGURES 1 – 5)

Types. Holotype male from Brazil, state of São Paulo, Miracatu, Fazenda Itereí (24 °03’S; 47 ° 13 ’W), 20– 26.IX. 2001, Equipe Biota col., deposited in MCN 48936. Paratype female, same data as the holotype, deposited in MCN 49310. Paratype male and female, same data as the holotype, deposited in MCN 49311.

Etymology. The specific name is a patronymic in honor to the Brazilian arachnologist Maria Aparecida de Leão Marques, nicknamed “Cida”.

Diagnosis. The male of Dipoena cidae  new species resembles that of D. atlantica Chickering, 1943  (see Levi, 1963: 163, fig. 154), but differs in having the median apophysis longer ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 5), sperm duct in the tegulum with sinuous loop shorter, conductor developed and embolus hooked ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 5). The female of Dipoena cidae  is close to D. pusilla (Keyserling, 1886)  (see Levi, 1963: 165, figs. 161, 122) by much darker and by anterior lip above the opening of the epigynum is shorter ( Figs. 4, 5View FIGURES 1 – 5); differs from it in the smaller first spermathecae and more distant from each other ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 1 – 5).
