Diagnosis. Males of Epicratinus takutu   resembles those of E. amazonicus   by the distal area of RTA back directed retrolaterally, while in E. amazonicus   it’s directed forward and prolaterally. Females are similar but have longitudinal oval atrium with conspicuous anterior and lateral borders ( Figs 14 View FIGURE 14 , 15 View FIGURE 15 ).

Description. (See Jocqué & Baert, 2005). Supplementary information: Male (IBSP 168187). Clypeus height: 0.75. Eyes: diameters AME 0.08, ALE 0.1, PME 0.1, PLE 0.13. Interdistances AME-AME 0.06, AME-ALE 0.12, PME-PME 0.1, PME-PLE 0.33, ALE-PLE 0.09.

Female (IBSP 168192). Clypeus height: 0.88. Eyes: diameters AME 0.1, ALE 0.1, PME 0.12, PLE 0.12. Interdistances AME-AME 0.06, AME-ALE 0.16, PME-PME 0.12, PME-PLE 0.45, ALE-PLE 0.1.

Variation. Males (n = 10): total length 5.1‾5.6, carapace 2.32‾2.5, femur I 1.45‾1.6. Females (n = 10): total length 5.89‾6.6, carapace 2.66‾2.75, femur I 1.57‾1.7. Carapace coloration diversify from dark brown for speci-mens from Crato, Ceará to brown of animals from other localities.

Distribution. Guyana (Mazaruni-Potaro) and Brazil (northeast region and north of Espírito Santo) ( Fig. 42 View FIGURE 42 ).
