Etymology. In honor of arachnologist, Dr. Sylvia Marlene Lucas, from the Instituto Butantan, for her many contributions to the study of Mygalomorphae.

Diagnosis. Males of Siremata lucasae   n. sp. resemble those of S. valteri   n. sp. in the elongated palpal bulb ( Fig. 44C View FIGURE 44 ), but differ in the absence of a medial ventral megaspine on tibia I and the large number and length of the retrolateral spines on the palpal tibia ( Fig. 44E View FIGURE 44 ). Females are more similar to those of S. valteri   n. sp. as they have spermathecae with long ducts; but differ in the presence of a dense glandular region ( Fig. 44B –D View FIGURE 44 ).

Description. Male ( IBSP 13819).
