Diagnosis Cyriocosmus hoeferi sp. nov. can be distinguished from all other congeners by its black carapace with two lateral whitish stripes, abdomen with four lateral stripes, joined neither basally nor apically with urticating setae patch, and by the short and wide paraembolic apophysis in male palpal bulb. The spermathecae are without sclerotized basal plates, both spiral necks are basally almost joined.
Etymology The specific name is a patronym in honour of Dr Hubert Höfer, who found and photographed this new species in the Amazon rainforest near Manaus, Brazil.
