Diagnosis

Based on Giupponi & Miranda (2016), this species may be separated from other Charinus   in Amazonia and northern South America by means of the following combination of characters: tegument light brown; median eyes and median ocular tubercle absent; lateral eyes well-developed, but pale; small, rounded tetra- and pentasternum; cushion-like gonopods with lateral projections directed posteriorly, covering aperture of internal seminal receptacles; two dorsal spines on pedipalp tarsus, small basal spine, one-quarter length of distal spine; tibia of leg I with 21 articles, tarsus I with 37 articles; leg IV basitibia with three pseudo-articles; leg IV basitibia trichobothrium bt situated in proximal third; leg IV distitibia with 14 trichobothria; basal trichobothria, bf, bc and sbf equidistant; sc and sf series each with five trichobothria.

Charinus guto   resembles C. vulgaris   , but possesses more spines on the pedipalp femur and patella.

Etymology

Patronym honoring José Augusto Pereira Barreiros nicknamed Guto (in memoriam; Giupponi & Miranda 2016).
