Type material. Male holotype from Uruçuca (Fazenda Santo Antonio) [14 ° 35 ʹ 34 ʺS, 39 ° 17 ʹ0 2 ʺW], Bahia, Brazil, 24.X. 1978, J.S. Santos, deposited in IBSP 163260. Paratypes: 1 male and 1 female, same data as the holotype, deposited in IBSP 163262 and 163261, respectively; 1 male from Uruçuca (Fazenda Santa Tereza) [14 ° 35 ʹ 34 ʺS, 39 ° 17 ʹ0 2 ʺW], Bahia, Brazil, 3.II. 1970, CEPLAC, deposited in MNRJ 13435; 1 female from Barro Preto (Fazenda Mangabeira) [14 ° 48 ʹ 36 ʺS, 39 ° 28 ʹ 15 ʺW], Bahia, Brazil, 12.VII. 1968, CEPLAC, deposited in MNRJ 13380; 1 male from Barro Preto [14 ° 48 ʹ 36 ʺS, 39 ° 28 ʹ 15 ʺW], Bahia, Brazil, deposited in MNRJ.

Etymology. “ Bobó  ” is a typical meal of the Bahia culinary tradition. It is prepared with shrimp, spices and puree of cassava, served with rice, dried shrimp, ginger and “dendê” palm oil.

Diagnosis. Males of Celaetycheus bobo  sp. nov. ( Figs 9 A –BView FIGURE 9. A – D) resemble those of C. acaraje  sp. nov. ( Figs 7 A –BView FIGURE 7. A – D) by the male palp with a straight median apophysis with ventral cup-shaped projection, but can be distinguished by the larger embolus and the large additional tegular projection ( Fig. 9 AView FIGURE 9. A – D). Females of C. bobo  sp. nov. ( Figs 9 C –DView FIGURE 9. A – D) resemble those of C. caruru  sp. nov. ( Figs 10 C –DView FIGURE 10. A – D) by the subtriangular shape of the median sector of epigynum, but can be distinguished by the longer median sector of epigynum ( Fig. 9 CView FIGURE 9. A – D).

Palpal femur with short proximal spines; coxa and trochanter of leg I with short and thick spines ( Fig. 14View FIGURE 14 A). Palp ( Figs 9 A –BView FIGURE 9. A – D): tibia straight, with almost the same length as the cymbium; retrolateral tibial apophysis short and coniform; ventral tibial projection large; retrolateral cymbial projection elongated, with truncated tip; laminar embolus with a large base.

Female (paratype IBSP 163261). Total length 4.7. Carapace 2.1 long, 1.8 wide. Eye diameters: AME 0.10 / ALE 0.08 / PME 0.16 / PLE 0.20.
