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

Diagnosis. Males of N. buruti  n. sp. resembles those of N. lachonta  n. sp. by the length of copulatory bulb (tegulum + embolus) being more than two times the palpal tibia length ( Figs 8View FIGURE 8 B–C; 9B–C), differing by having a thicker large bulb with a narrower tegulum basal section ( Fig. 8IView FIGURE 8).

Description. Male (holotype): Total length 5.9. Carapace 2.2 long, 1.8 wide. Sternum 1.8 long, 1.6 wide. Leg measurements: I: 2.85; II: 2.85; III: 2.35; IV: 3.1. Carapace light orange with pattern ( Fig. 9EView FIGURE 9). Chelicerae, palps and legs orange; coxae and trochanters lighter. Endites, labium and sternum light orange. Abdomen light gray, without a remarkable pattern ( Fig. 9AView FIGURE 9). Anal tubercle and spinnerets lighter than abdomen. Anterior legs without arolium, crista or gladius. Palp with thick large copulatory bulb, slightly swollen at tegulum apical section and narrow at basal section ( Figs 8IView FIGURE 8; 9View FIGURE 9 B–C), tegulum surface mostly smooth, embolus with surface mostly covered with fine and longitudinal grooves, embolus tip beveled and slightly sinuous, without noticeable projections.
