Diagnosis. Males of E. madre resemble those of E. paredesi n. sp. and E. marquesae by the MA with a long, retrolaterally directed median prong ( Figs 1 View FIGURES 1 , 27 View FIGURES 27 ) but can be distinguished from the former by the presence of an embolar prolateral process and from the later by that process being inserted sub-apically ( Figs 23 View FIGURES 23 , 24). Females share with those of E. marquesae the relatively small epigynal anterior projections, presenting a semi-circular sclerotized area at its inner margin, and posterior plates projected anteriorly over the median field ( Fig. 52 View FIGURES 52 ; Bonaldo 1994: fig. 80). They differ by the larger semi-circular sclerotized area on the anterior projections, which are projected over the posterior plates ( Bonaldo 1994: fig. 79).

Description. Male ( MPEG 21927). Colour in ethanol: carapace brownish red, cephalic region darker, thoracic groove mark reddish. Chelicerae, endites and labium brownish red. Sternum orange with brown margins. Legs yellow. Chelicerae with 4 promarginal teeth, the third the largest, the first a denticle; and 4 closely placed retromarginal teeth. Tarsi III–IV with dense scopulae, metatarsi III–IV with moderate scopulae. Total length 10.1. Carapace 5.0 long, 3.8 wide. Eye diameters: AME 0.28, ALE 0.27, PME 0.24, PLE 0.26. Eye interdistances: AME–AME 0.29, AME–ALE 0.31, PME–PME 0.40, PME–PLE 0.55, AME–PME 0.30, ALE–PLE 0.10, clypeus AME 0.17, clypeus ALE 0.17. Leg and palp measurements: palp 5.4 (2.0, 0.6, 1.2, -, 1.6); leg I missing; leg II missing; leg III 13.4 (3.7, 1.6, 3.0, 3.6, 1.5); leg IV 19.6 (4.8, 1.9, 3.9, 5.0, 1.7). Spination: palp femur: d 0-1-1; tibia p 2-0. Leg. I absent. II—absent. III—femur d 1-1-0, p 0-d1-d1, r 0-d1-d2; tibia d 0, p 2-1, r 1-1, v 2-2 -2; metatarsus d p1r1-p1r1-p1r1, p 0-0-1, r 0-0-1, v 2-2 -1. IV—femur d 1-1-0, p 0-d1-d1, r 0-0-d1; tibia d 0, p 1-1, r 1- 1, v 2-2 -2; metatarsus d p1r1-p1r1-p1r1, p 0-0-1, r 0-0-1, v 2-2 -1. Palp: tibia thin, long, almost the same length of cymbium; RTA excavated, projected retrolaterally. Tegular process absent; MA apically placed, median prong large; conductor hyaline. Embolus inserted sub-basally; embolus long, thin, base rounded, prolateral process hyaline, apices hook-shaped ( Figs 23 View FIGURES 23 ̄25).

Female. Described by Bonaldo (1994: 129). Complementary description: vulva composed by large primary spermathecae with short fertilization ducts; secondary spermathecae inconspicuous (Fig. 26).
