Types. Male holotype and female paratype from Fóz do Córrego Três Barras, Rio Guarani, Três Barras do Paraná, Paraná, Brazil, 24.ii–24.iii.1993, A.B. Bonaldo, deposited in MCN 56799View Materials and MCN 56800View Materials, respectively, examined.

Additional material examined. BRAZIL: Santa Catarina: Blumenau, Parque Municipal das Nascentes do Ribeirão Garcia (27°06’S 49°10’W), 18.v.2004 – 28.ii.2005, R.C. Francisco, 1♂ ( IBSP 122709View Materials)GoogleMaps  ; Chapecó, Rio Monte Alegre (27°10’52,07”S 53°46’42,03”W), ii.2008, R.C. Francisco, 1♂ ( IBSP 126553View Materials; palps, carapace and legs for SEM)GoogleMaps  ; ii.2008, R.C. Francisco, 2♂ ( IBSP 126555View Materials, IBSP 126554View Materials)  ; São Paulo: Teodoro Sampaio, Parque Estadual Morro do Diabo (22°36’34”S 52°10’36”W), 24–31.iii.2003, Equipe BIOTA, 1♂ ( IBSP 151469View Materials)GoogleMaps  ; 24–31.iii.2003, Equipe BIOTA, 1♀ ( IBSP 154310View Materials)  ; 24–31.iii.2003, Equipe BIOTA, 1♂ ( IBSP 154313View Materials)  ; 24–31.iii.2003, Equipe BIOTA, 1♂ ( IBSP 154314View Materials)  .

Remarks. Specimens examined from the Brazilian State of São Paulo correspond to a new locality record for this species, previously known from the Southern Brazilian States of Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina.

Diagnosis. Males of N. guarani  resembles those of N. naylienae  n. sp. by having a short copulatory bulb (tegulum + embolus), the length just two times or less the palpal tibia length ( Figs 1View FIGURE 1 B–C; 4B–C), but differ by the weakly swollen tegulum apical section (tas), two times wider than basal section but narrower than palpal tibia width ( Figs 1View FIGURE 1 B–C, 8G) and by the beveled embolus tip with very short projections ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3 G–I). Females are readily recognized by the triangular distal margin of receptaculum (dmr) ( Figs 1IView FIGURE 1; 10AView FIGURE 10). Additionally, both males and females have a darker carapace pattern if compared with all other known Nyetnops  species ( Fig. 1A, E, GView FIGURE 1).

Description. Male and female described by Platnick and Lise (2007): 9. Complementary description of female (IBSP 154310): External genital area with anterior and posterior plates slightly sclerotized ( Fig. 1HView FIGURE 1). Internal area with a triangular distal margin of receptaculum ( Figs 1IView FIGURE 1; 10AView FIGURE 10).

Distribution. South and Southeast Brazil ( Fig. 10CView FIGURE 10).
