Description (amendments; see Machado et al. 2007a). Tibia 1 in three newly examined males: 4.4, 4.8, 4.9; in three females: 3.3, 3.4, 3.5. Male leg femora 3 slightly wider than others (diameters femora 1–4 in one male: 0.15, 0.15, 0.17, 0.14). Male eye measures: distance PME-PME 80 µm, diameter PME 100 µm, distance PME-ALE 80 µm, distance AME-AME 30 µm, diameter AME 25 µm. Epigynal processes in newly examined females variable but slightly shorter than shown in Machado et al. (2007a: fig. 10).

Natural history. The spiders were found in the same microhabitat as M. itajai  , but apparently only within the ground, not in the leaf litter. When disturbed, they did not vibrate nor run away but just remained still.

Distribution. Known from type locality in Santa Catarina ( Brazil) only ( Fig. 738View FIGURES 738–739) (the new records above are within the range of coordinates given for the type specimens).
