Type material. Male holotype from Brazil, Pernambuco, Recife (Horto Dois Irmãos), [08°03'00''S 34°59'17''W], 30 May–02 June 2001, Equipe Biota leg., deposited in IBSP 68673. Paratypes with same data as holotype: 2 males ( IBSP 219463View Materials), 1 male ( IBSP 68674View Materials) and 1 male ( IBSP 68674View Materials)  .

Etymology. The specific name is a noun in apposition and refers to the type locality.

Diagnosis. Males of P. doisirmaos  sp.nov. resemble those of P. angelim  sp. nov. and P. bocaina  sp. nov. in having six eyes ( Figs 14–16View FIGURES 13–18). They differ from P. bocaina  sp. nov. in having PME completely formed and male palp with rounded tegulum (ovoid in P. bocaina  sp. nov.), and from P. angelim  sp. nov. in having male palp with median apophysis large and twisted at base (hook-shaped in P. angelim  sp. nov.) and triangular RTA without constricted tip (RTA with robust base and constricted tip in P. angelim  sp. nov.) ( Figs 53, 54View FIGURES 53–56).

Chelicerae 0.38 long; one retromarginal tooth and four promarginal teeth. Leg formula 4123; measurements: I: 2.89 (0.86, 0.45, 0.64, 0.5, 0.44); II: 2.7 (0.76, 0.44, 0.58, 0.48, 0.44); III: 2.28 (0.65, 0.32, 0.45, 0.42, 0.44); IV: 3.21 (0.86, 0.42, 0.70, 0.68, 0.55).
