Abstract

The genus Uaiuara Rheims is revisited. A new species is described, based on females from Iquitos, Peru and new distribution records for Uaiuara amazonica (Simon, 1880) and U. quyguaba Rheims, 2013 are provided. In addition, an identification key and updated distribution maps are provided for all species.
