Specimens examined.

Female.

One specimen measured. Dorsal shield 343 long and 220 wide, j1 18, j3 20, j4 10, j5 10, j6 11, J2 12, J5 9, z2 11, z4 10, z5 10, Z1 12, Z4 36, Z5 73, s4 22, S2 12, S4 10, S5 8, r3 14, R1 14; distances between St1-St3 56, St2-St2 62 and St5-St5 63; ventrianal shield 115 long, 87 wide at level of ZV2 and 85 wide at level of anus; movable cheliceral digit 27 long; fixed cheliceral digit 23 long; calyx of spermatheca 5 long; Sge I 27, Sge II 26, Sge III 31, Sti III 24, Sge IV 43, Sti IV 36, St IV 53.

Remarks.

Measurements of the specimens collected are similar to those of the original description, except for shorter calyx of spermatheca (9 in the holotype). Lofego et al. (2004, 2009) reported a slightly longer Z4 [respectively, 39 (37-41) and 38 (35-45)]. Measurements of the specimens collected are similar to those of Gondim Jr. and Moraes (2001). This is the first record of this species in Bahia.
