The new theraphosid Megaphobema velvetosoma n. sp. described in the paper from Ecuador is very closely related to Megaphobema robustu (Ausserer, 1875) but differs by velvet-brown (female) respectively brown-blackish (male) colour. The ventral tibia spur bears a long spine spine-shaped process. the spermatheca is regurarly rounded.
