We propose the name Bumba
as a new name for Maraca, preoccupied by Maraca
Hebard, 1926 (Orthoptera). We describe and illustrate Bumba lennoni
, a new theraphosid species from Caxiuanã, Pará, Brazil. This species differs from the other species of the genus in the extremely reduced keel on male palpal organ and in the higher number of labial and maxillary cuspules. Females additionally differ in the spermathecal morphology. As a consequence of the name replacement, three new combinations are established.
