Etymology. The specific ephitet is a noun in apposition referring to the Quilombo dos Palmares, in the State of Alagoas, Brazil. Quilombos were settlements founded by escaped slaves during Brazilian colonial period.

Diagnosis. Males of Tupirinna palmares   sp. nov. resemble those of T. lata   sp. nov. by the TEP dorsal to the embolus, but differ by the RTA sub-apical dorsal lobe represented by a small hump and by the wide-based, sub-triangular embolus ( Fig. 17A, B View FIGURE 17 ). Females share with those of T. albofasciata   the epigynal plate with a well-defined median depression, differing by the median depression being sub-triangular ( Fig. 17C, D View FIGURE 17 ).

Description. Male holotype (IBSP 85193). Carapace orange, with median brown stripe extending over ocular area, and dark brown stripes laterally. Chelicerae brown. Labium brown, with sclerotized “pockets” on anterior region. Endites brown. Sternum yellow, with borders and anterior lateral excavations dark brown. Legs yellow, with posterior region of lateral surfaces of tibiae black. Abdomen dorsum yellow, with pair of longitudinal black spots in cardiac area; in median region, two pairs of black spots on each side; subsequently, one subrectangular black spot, yellow in middle. Contour of spinnerets black; venter yellow ( Fig. 7A View FIGURE 7 ). Total length 4.87. Carapace length 2.32, width 1.99, height 0.45. Clypeus height 0.18.

Female paratype (IBSP 85193). Carapace orange, with median brown stripe extending over ocular area, and dark brown lateral stripes. Chelicerae brown. Labium brown, with sclerotized “pockets” on anterior region. Endites brown. Sternum yellow, with borders and anterior lateral excavations brown.
