Ctenus sinuatipes F.O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1897: 84  , pl. 3, figs 1b, 4d, 6e, 7f (male lectotype and two female paralectotype from San José Province, Costa Rica, 1135 m.a.s.l., J.F. Tristan coll., deposited in BMNH 1896.3.20.26–29, examined). F.O. Pickard-Cambridge 1900: 112, pl. 8, figs 5–6; Petrunkevitch 1925: 160, fig. 81; Polotow & Brescovit 2014: 355, fig. 14A; World Spider Catalog 2018.

Diagnosis. Males of Kiekie sinuatipes  ( Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 A–B) resemble those of K. sarapiqui  ( Fig. 8View FIGURE 8 A–B) by the shape of the embolus and RTA, but can be distinguished by the elongated median apophysis and wider conductor. Females of Kiekie sinuatipes  ( Fig. 5CView FIGURE 5) also resemble those of K. sarapiqui  ( Fig. 8CView FIGURE 8), but can be distinguished by the shape of the epigynum, with shorter median field and slender lateral projection of the lateral fields. Internally, the copulatory ducts of Kiekie sinuatipes  ( Fig. 5DView FIGURE 5) exhibit a twist, not covering the spermathecae, while in K. sarapiqui  (Fig. 9D) the copulatory ducts fold over itself before it enters the spermathecae.

Description. Male (BMNH 1896.3.20.26). Total length 20.20. Carapace 10.40 long and 10.00 wide. Clypeus 0.50 high. Eye diameters: AME 0.44, ALE 0.36, PME 0.52, PLE 0.46. Leg measurements: I: femur 11.80/ patella 4.60/ tibia 11.00/ metatarsus 10.50/ tarsus 4.20/ total 42.10; II: 11.00/ 4.60/ 10.20/ 9.80/ 3.60/ 39.20; III: 9.20/ 4.10/ 8.00/ 8.70/ 2.80/ 32.80; IV: 12.20/ 4.50/ 11.30/ 12.80/ 4.40/ 45.20. Leg formula 4123. Leg spination: tibia I–II v2- 2 -2-2-2, r1-1-0, p1-1-0, III–IV v2-2 -2, r1-1-0, p1-1-0; metatarsus I, II v2-2 -2, r1-0-0, p-1-0-0, III v2-2 -2, r1-1-1, p1-1-1, IV v2-3 -2, r1-1-1, p1-1-1 ( Fig. 3BView FIGURE 3). Palp ( Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 A–B): RTA spine-shaped, slightly curved forward; embolus elongated and laminar, with large base, narrowing in the middle to the tip; median apophysis slightly curved prolaterally; conductor with narrow base and large apex, covering the embolus tip.

Legs measurements: I: femur 7.60/ patella 3.60/ tibia 7.10/ metatarsus 5.60/ tarsus 2.10/ total 26.00; II: 7.10/ 3.40/ 6.40/ 5.90/ 2.30/ 25.10; III: 6.20/ 3.10/ 5.20/ 5.00/ 2.10/ 21.60; IV: 8.00/ 3.30/ 7.50/ 8.90/ 2.70/ 30.40. Leg formula 4123. Leg spination: tibia I–II v2-2 -2-2-2, r0, p0, III–IV v2-2 -2, r1-1, p1-1; metatarsus I, II v2-2 -2, r0, p0, III v2-2 -2, r1-1, p1-1, IV v1-1 -1-2-2, r1-1, p1-1. Epigynum ( Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 C–D): median field subhexagonal; lateral projections elongated; copulatory ducts curved, with 360° turn; fertilization ducts small.
