Type. Male holotype from Centro Científico Río Palenque (79°22’W 0°35’S), Los Ríos, Ecuador, 30.viii.1977, S. Sandoval, deposited at QCAZ, not examined.

Additional material examined. ECUADOR: Río Palenque (79°22’W 0°35’S), Los Ríos, C. Tapia & N. Dupérré, 1♂, 1♀ ( QCAZ) GoogleMaps .

Diagnosis. Males of Nopsma juchuy n. comb. resemble those of Nopsma florencia n. sp. by the small tegulum, not reaching the palpal tibia length but are readily recognized because the tegulum width is one-third of the cymbium length ( Fig. 15B, D View FIGURE 15 ) whereas in N. florencia n. sp. is only one-fifth; the embolus keel bordering two-third of the tip is also diagnostic ( Fig. 16 View FIGURE 16 B–D). Females with straight distal and proximal margins of receptaculum ( Fig 16 View FIGURE 16 G–J).

Description. Male (from Rio Palenque, not type): Total length 7.0. Carapace 3.95 long, 3.1 wide. Sternum 3.2 long, 2.8 wide. Leg measurements: I: 3.80; II: 3.75; III: 3.30; IV: 4.05. Carapace orange-brown with remarkable dorsal pattern ( Fig. 15F View FIGURE 15 ). Chelicerae, palps, sternum orange-brown, endites, labium pale brown ( Fig. 15G View FIGURE 15 ), and legs orange; coxae and trochanters lighter ( Fig. 15E View FIGURE 15 ). Abdomen gray with undefined dorsal pattern ( Fig. 15A View FIGURE 15 ). Anal tubercle and spinnerets lighter than abdomen. Palp with a globose small oval tegulum ( Fig. 15B View FIGURE 15 ) and a embolus with a keel bordering almost two-third of the tip ( Fig. 16 View FIGURE 16 B–E).

Female (from Rio Palenque, not type): Total length 7.5. Carapace 4.1 long, 3.3 wide. Sternum 3.8 long, 3.1 wide. Leg measurements: I: 3.85; II: 3.75; III: 3.35; IV: 4.15. Carapace, chelicerae, labium, legs, coxae, endites and sternum as in male ( Fig. 15H View FIGURE 15 ). Abdomen as in male, but somewhat lighter ( Fig. 15H View FIGURE 15 ). Anal tubercle and spinnerets lighter than abdomen. External genital area with sclerotization around spiracles (ess) strongly noticeable, reaching the anterior side of anterior spiracles ( Fig. 15I View FIGURE 15 ). Internal genitalia with a straight distal margin of receptaculum ( Figs 15J View FIGURE 15 ; 16 View FIGURE 16 G–J).

Distribution. Known only from Ecuador ( Fig. 18G View FIGURE 18 ).
