Type material. Female holotype from Central (11°01’- 11°19’S /41°47’- 42°10’W), Bahia, Brazil, July 15-31, 2002, E.F. Ramos & F.S. Cunha, deposited in IBSP 67405 ( PBI _ OON 25999 View Materials ). Paratypes: same data as holotype, 1♀ ( IBSP 67392 View Materials , PBI _ OON 26000 View Materials ); same data as holotype, 1♀ ( IBSP 67404 View Materials , PBI _ OON 26016 View Materials )   .

Etymology. The specific name refers to the type locality. It is to be treated as a noun in apposition.

Diagnosis. Females of this species are similar to C. vianai   comb. nov. by the shape of the internal genitalia with narrow and triangular antero-lateral area ( Fig. 14H View FIGURES 14 , 15H View FIGURES 15 ), can be distinguished from this species by the dark red-brown coloration ( Figs 15A View FIGURES 15 ̅F), by proportionally higher carapace and shorter abdomen ( Figs 15A, D, E View FIGURES 15 ).

Clypeus curved downwards in front view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more, around ALE diameter. Eyes relatively larg e, all subequal; ALE separated by more than their diameter, PLE-PME separated by less than PME radius. Sternum dark red-brown, fused to carapace, furrow with rows of small pits, surface finely punctuate, microsculpture medially and in furrows, posterior margin not extending posteriorly of coxae IV; setae originating from surface.
