Etymology. The specific epithet is a patronym given in honor of Javier Sampedro, for his efforts in transmiting the evolutionary thinking to the people in an understandable way.

Diagnosis. Males of Patrera sampedroi n. sp. resemble those of P. carvalhoi n. sp., by having prominent tutacular groove on the cymbium, S-shaped and long embolus, and entire, apically bilobed retrolateral tibial apophysis ( Fig. 15 View FIGURE 15 C–E), but can be distinguished by their long, wide retrolateral tibial apophysis (smaller and thinner in P. carvalhoi ) ( Fig. 19 View FIGURE 19 B–D).

Legs yellow, darkest at metatarsi and tarsi. Abdomen yellow with dark patches; ventrally similar as dorsal ( Fig. 19A View FIGURE 19 ). Spinnerets yellow. Total length 7.26, carapace length 3.43, width 2.68, high 1.24. Clypeus height 0.10. Eye diameters and interdistances: AME 0.11, ALE 0.16, PME 0.15, PLE 0.19; AME–AME 0.27, AME–ALE 0.32, PME–PME 0.45, PME–PLE 0.43, ALE–PLE 0.37.

Abdomen: length 4.28, epigastric furrow 1.15 from tracheal spiracle, spiracle 1.63 from base of spinnerets. Palp: retrolateral tibial apophysis strongly bilobed, long and apically truncated with the ventral branch wider than the dorsal branch; cymbium shorter than tibia; subtegulum longer than wide, with conspicuous distal projection; tegulum longer than wide; median apophysis laminar, long, curved and medially situated; embolus long, apically filiform, with narrow base and basally inserted on the tegulum ( Fig. 19 View FIGURE 19 C–D).
