Other material examined. COLOMBIA, Magdalena: Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, San Pedro de La Sierra, Hacienda Hierba Buena (10°53′27.3″N; 73°59′43.9″W), 2040m, ♁1, ♀ 1, 23.XI.2017, L. Martínez leg. (ICN-Ar- 10626) GoogleMaps .

Etymology. The specific epithet is a patronym in honor to Eduardo Florez Daza, for his contributions to arachnology in Colombia and for his support and advice to the first and third authors in the studies of Colombian spiders.

Diagnosis. Males of Patrera florezi n. sp. resemble those of, P. wiwa n. sp. and P. yukpa n. sp. by having the cymbium similarly shaped, S-shaped, long embolus and bifid retrolateral tibial apophysis ( Figs 21C – E View FIGURE 21 , 20B – D View FIGURE 20 ), but can be distinguished from these species by having the ventral branch of the retrolateral tibial apophysis longer and wider than the dorsal one (shorter in P. wiwa and almost with same length in P. yukpa ), which is extremely thin ( Fig. 16C – E View FIGURE 16 ). Females resemble those of P. perijaensis n. sp., by their spherical-shaped spermathecae and shape of the copulatory ducts ( Fig. 17 View FIGURE 17 B–C), but can be distinguished by the oval hood (larger in P. perijaensis ), larger spermathecae (smaller in P. perijaensis ), and small seminal receptacles inserted on the posterior portion of the copulatory ducts ( Fig. 16 View FIGURE 16 F–G).

Description. Male (Holotype, ICN-Ar-9668). Carapace pale yellow with two longitudinal stripes of black simple setae ( Fig. 16A View FIGURE 16 ). Chelicerae brown. Labium and endites brown. Sternum yellow. Legs yellow, darker on metatarsi and tarsi. Abdomen uniformly gray ( Fig. 16A View FIGURE 16 ). Spinnerets gray. Total length 6.51, carapace length 3.14, width 2.39, high 0.72. Clypeus height 0.11. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.10, ALE 0.17, PME 0.17, PLE 0.16; AME–AME 0.21, AME–ALE 0.31, PME–PME 0.49, PME–PLE 0.41, ALE–PLE 0.34. Chelicerae 1.46 long, four promarginal teeth; five retromarginal denticles. Leg measurements: leg I—femur 3.69/ patella 1.22/ tibia 3.89/ metatarsus 2.4/ tarsus 1.29/ total 12.49; II—3.7/ 1.08/ 3.55/ 2.23/ 1.2/ 11.76; III—2.4/ 0.95/ 1.81/ 2.14/ 0.69/ 7.99; IV—3.39/ 1.05/ 2.89/ 3.76/ 1.21/ 12.3.

Abdomen: length 3.58, epigastric furrow 0.82 from tracheal spiracle, spiracle 1.45 from base of spinnerets. Palp: retrolateral tibial apophysis bifid, long, with both branches apically truncated with the ventral branch wider than the dorsal branch; cymbium almost as long as the tibia; subtegulum longer than wide, with conspicuous distal projection; tegulum longer than wide, with a sclerotized ventral tegular process under the median apophysis; median apophysis short, curved and apically situated; embolus long, apically filiform, with narrow base and basally inserted on the tegulum ( Fig. 16 View FIGURE 16 C–E).

Female (Paratype, ICN-Ar-9669). Coloration as in the male ( Fig. 16B View FIGURE 16 ). Legs yellow, darkest at metatarsi and tarsi. Total length 6.09, carapace length 2.52, width 2.01, high 1.15. Clypeus height 0.09. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.076, ALE 0.12, PME 0.12, PLE 0.16; AME–AME 0.21, AME–ALE 0.43, PME–PME 0.57, PME–PLE 0.33, ALE–PLE 0.35. Chelicerae 1.06 long, four promarginal teeth; five retromarginal denticles.

Abdomen: length 3.21, epigastric furrow 0.82 from tracheal spiracle, spiracle 1.37 from base of spinnerets. Epigynum: hood short and oval; lateral borders sclerotized, thin, oblique; atrium subtriangular; internally with wide, short, n-shaped copulatory ducts; seminal receptacles small and short; spermathecae large, oval and posteriorly positioned; fertilization ducts shorter than spermathecae ( Fig. 16 View FIGURE 16 F–G).
