TYPE: Male holotype collected by hand from a forest litter sample at an elevation of 721 m at Tinalandia , 0.29888°S, 79.05250°W, Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, Ecuador (Dec. 6, 2009, N. Dupérré, E. Tapia), deposited in QCAZ (PBI_ OON 49202 View Materials ) GoogleMaps .

ETYMOLOGY: The species name is a noun in apposition taken from the shortened name of the province of the type locality.

DIAGNOSIS: Males differ from the other species by the basally broad embolus (figs. 497, 500; rather than the relatively slender embolus in B. pucuna ), the relatively short prolateral part of the conductor, reaching less than half the length of the retrolateral part (figs. 496, 497, 499, 500; almost as long as retrolateral part in B. pucuna , reaching ⅔ length of retrolateral part in B. baobab ), and the shape of the retrolateral part of the conductor (figs. 449–501).
