Additional material examined. BRAZIL: Bahia. Ilhéus [14 ° 47 ʹ 20 ʺS, 39 °02ʹ 56 ʺW], CEPLAC, 6 males, 18 females, 6 immatures, 7.IV. 1998 (IBSP 19133, 19276, 19255, 19309, 19315, 19319, 19351, 19353, 19368, 19374, 19378, 19427, 19426, 19434, 19435); 8 males, 9 females, 5 immatures, 11.IV. 1998 (IBSP 19108, 19130, 19141, 19162, 19170, 19199, 19232, 19334, 19341); 2 males, 2 females, 5 immatures, 12.IV. 1998 (IBSP 19042, 19090, 19180); all collected by A.D. Brescovit et al.; 1 female, 24.VII. 1998, no collector (IBSP 36123); Uruçuca (Fazenda Almada) [14 ° 35 ʹ 34 ʺS, 39 ° 17 ʹ0 2 ʺW], 5 males, 26.XI. 1977, J.S. Santos (MCTP 3779; 3792).

Etymology. “ Moqueca  ” is a typical meal of the Bahia culinary tradition. It made with fish or seafood braised with different spices, coconut milk and “dendê”palm oil.

Diagnosis. Males of Celaetycheus moqueca  sp. nov. ( Figs 11 A –BView FIGURE 11. A – D) can be distinguished from the remaining species of the genus by the large median apophysis and elongated additional tegular projection on the palp. Females of C. moqueca  sp. nov. ( Figs 11 C –DView FIGURE 11. A – D) resemble those of C. flavostriatus  ( Fig. 1 AView FIGURE 1. A – D) by the subtriangular shape of the median sector of epigynum, but can be distinguished by the absence of lateral lobes from the lateral fields of the epigynum.
