Type material. Female holotype from Floresta da Cicuta, 445m, -22.52305°, -44.10416°, Volta Redonda, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 11-18, 2001, Equipe Biota, deposited in IBSP 67237 PBI_ OON 25676 View Materials   . Paratype: Fazenda Regional de Criaç „o e Fazenda Santa Helena, Pinheiral , Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, -22.56666°, -44.35000°, Nov. 05-11, 1999, A.D.

Etymology. The specific name refers to the locality in which the paratype was collected. It is to be treated as a noun in apposition.

Diagnosis. Female of this species resembles C. punctata   sp. nov. by the general appearance ( Figs 92 View FIGURES 92 A-D, 93A-D) and C. similis   sp. nov. by the shape of the internal genitália ( Figs 92H View FIGURES 92 , 102H View FIGURES 102 ); can be distinguished from the first by the much broader apodemes proximal portion at the internal genitalia ( Figs 92H View FIGURES 92 , 93H View FIGURES 93 ) and from the last by the proportionally broader receptaculum and narrower distance between the receptaculum and the posterior border of the internal genitalia ( Figs 92H View FIGURES 92 , 102H View FIGURES 102 ).
