TYPES: Male holotype from Fazenda Experimental da UFAM, km 38 of Road BR174, Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil (2 ° 39921.230 S 60 ° 4931.250W), Feb. 07, 2009, B. Machado (MPEG 19159 PBI_ OON 40493 View Materials ).

ETYMOLOGY: The specific name is a patronym in honor of arachnologist Cristina Anne Rheims (IBSP), in recognition for her many contributions to this paper.

DIAGNOSIS: Males of Simlops cristinae differ from those of S. bandeirante by the large conductor, presenting widened, unsclerotized base with an apically directed protrusion (figs. 306, 307).

MALE (PBI_ OON 40493 View Materials , figs. 156–163, 283, 306, 307): Total length 1.94. Carapace dark red-brown, sternum and mouthparts orange-brown, legs pale orange, without color pattern; abdomen soft portions and scuta orange-brown. Sternal microsculpture medially and in furrows. Endites with retrolateral and prolateral processes sharply point- ed, similarly sized; median process inconspicuous (fig. 283). Postepigastric scutum almost semicircular, covering about 2/3 of abdominal length. Palp: embolus stout, narrowed distally, with large ejaculatory opening; conductor with wide base, originating in the bulbus, adjacent to embolic base, narrowing distally and with a retrodorsally projected, sclerotized, oval lamella bearing a dorsal semitranslucent knob (figs. 161–163, 306, 307).
