    I think there's one in the Green Ronin Advanced Bestiary but can't be sure. Plenty of useful templates in there, anyway.

    I am away from the book at the moment but if you do not mind multiclassing then I believe you could take two levels of totemist and pick up the girallon soulmeld out of the magic of incarnum.

    If I remember correctly that will give you two extra arms to do things with, along with some other options.

    It is not a template though, sorry.

    I don't know the details but Obah-Blessed (Dungeon 136 p60) grants extra arms by the Obah spirits.

    Templates are (or can be) purely mechanics. Perhaps *your* Insectile Troll is in fact a 1/2 Glabrezu Troll (or whatever).

    Don't get too hung up on the descriptions for templates (or classes... or feats... or...).

    Edit: for example... Insectile Spellweaver = paragon (or other word for elite) Spellweaver (4 more arms = 4 more spells per round?).

    Why not just make your own, its not like a vampire or something complicated, you just want extra arms?

    +2 Arms, if it has claw attacks it gains two more because it has two more arms, multi weapon fighting for free, +1 CR.

    Listen to the smart man. Take the mechanics and use your own flavor. I've used the half-dragon template for a construct that was built with increased strength and a 'cannon' that fired a blast of flame, for a minotaur that was specially bred for extra power, etc.
