Etymology. The specific epithet is a noun in apposition taken from the type locality.

Diagnosis. Males of Patrera sutu n. sp., resemble those of P. philipi Dupérré & Tapia, 2016 and P. hatunkiru Dupérré & Tapia, 2016 , by having a large, strong ventral tegular process ( Fig. 23C View FIGURE 23 ̅E; Dupérré & Tapia, 2016: figs 41, 55), but can be diagnosed by the ventral tegular process apically bifid (entire in P. hatunkiru ), and retrolateral tibial apophysis with the ventral branch apically sharp and longer than dorsal branch (the ventral branch is wider and adjacent to the dorsal one in P. hatunkiru ) ( Fig. 23C View FIGURE 23 ̅E).

Description. Male (Holotype, ICN-Ar-10601). Carapace yellow, darker on the cephalic region ( Fig. 23A View FIGURE 23 ). Chelicerae dark brown. Labium and endites yellow. Legs pale yellow. Sternum yellowish. Abdomen dorsally grayish; ventrally yellow. Spinnerets yellow ( Fig. 23A View FIGURE 23 ). Total length 5.83, carapace length 2.41, width 2.0, high 0.91. Clypeus height 0.11. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.08, ALE 0.19, PME 0.17, PLE 0.19; AME–AME 0.22, AME–ALE 0.3, PME–PME 0.46, PME–PLE 0.4, ALE–PLE 0.39. Chelicerae 1.44 long, four promarginal teeth, six retromarginal teeth, with a large retromarginal and fissidentate Cvp ( Fig. 24B View FIGURE 24 ). Leg measurements: leg I—femur 3.6/ patella 0.98/ tibia 3.93/ metatarsus 3.64/ tarsus 1.88/ total 14.05; II—3.33/ 1.08/ 3.84/ 3.29/ 1.56/ 13.11; III—2.16/ 0.87/ 1.96/ 2.48/ 0.97/ 8.46; IV—3.01/ 1.0/ 2.67/ 3.39/ 1.28/ 11.37.

Abdomen: length 2.85, epigastric furrow 0.64 from tracheal spiracle, spiracle 1.07 from base of spinnerets. Palp: retrolateral tibial apophysis bifid, long, with the ventral branch longer than dorsal one; cymbium almost as long as tibia; subtegulum longer than wide; tegulum longer than wide, with a strong, large, apically bifid ventral tegular process; median apophysis short, laminar, curved and apically situated; embolus short, apically filiform, with narrow base and proximally inserted on the tegulum ( Fig. 23C View FIGURE 23 ̅E).
