Body covered with striation.

Venter ( Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 B)—Anogenital area with four pairs of genital, four pairs of aggenital setae and setae ps 2 in anal region 12 12 (12). Epimeral formula: 3 - 1-4 - 2.

Gnathosoma  —Setal count of palp (tarsus –genu): 5 - 2 - 2, tarsus with seta p' ζ T-shaped distally. Cheliceral stilettos length 12 12 (12–13); length of palp 48 49 (48–50).

Leg setal formulae as follows (tarsus—coxae): Leg I: 8 (1 ω)- 3 - 3 - 3 - 1; Leg II: 6 (1 ω)- 2 - 2 - 2 -0; Leg III: 5 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 1; Leg IV: 5 - 2 - 1 - 1 -0.

Male: Not found.

Differential diagnosis. This new species resembles Tydeus quadrisetosus ( Schiess, 1981)  by having short dorsal setae, not reaching to the base of the setae next behind, and four genital setae. Tydeus quadrisetosus  differs from the new species by a having furrow at the level of f 1 –f 2, setae sci much longer, and a more slender idiosoma.

Etymology. The new species was named for the Rio Pardo Valley where it was collected.

Material examined. Brazil: One holotype female and one female paratype collected from Vitis labrusca, Bordeaux  variety, Boqueirão do Leão County, State of Rio Grande do Sul, 17 /IX/ 2006, coll.
