Males of Ybyrapora diversipes comb n.

It was named after Lynn West, wife of mygalomorph expert Rick West. Clypeus narrow most species or absent. The type species, described as Aranea avicularia Linnaeus,was the first mygalomorph species described.

Pickard-Cambridge also considered Avicularia canceridea Lamarck as a synonym of Avicularia aviculariabut stated this last one as the type species.

Araneae ramilia, Araneidaorder Araneaeorder Araneida – spiders. Femora IV, scopulae on retrolateral face, occurrence: As Mygale leporinathe procurve anterior row of eyes, the digitiform posterior article of thersphosidae, the color pattern and type locality Brazil of the syntypes match with Iridopelma Fig.

Proximal part very curved in frontal view; thin distal width, tapering distally; basal, middle, and thedaphosidae width of 1. Male tibiae I with apophysis most species Fig. Color pattern Figs Females of Avicularia rufa can be distinguished from those of Avicularia hirschii by the non-twisted spermathecae. Koch, nomen dubium ; Avicularia detrita C.

Despite this, it was possible to observe that spermatheca have midwidth expanded, about 1. Intraspecific non-sexual interactions of Grammostola schulzei Araneae: Drastic ontogenetic changes on abdominal color pattern.

However, considering we examined topotypes and that their characteristics match with those found in Avicularia aviculariaonly familla slight differences on coloration, we decide to establish Avicularia velutina Simon, as a junior synonym of Avicularia avicularia Linnaeus, The general description format follows Ravenwith modifications, mainly of setae and thrichobothria patterns, which were not, herein, studied in detail.


Impact Factor 0. Of the several specimens of Avicularia rufaAvicularia juruensisAvicularia aviculariaand Avicularia variegata stat. The type was not theraphosisae in Vienna collection where it should be deposited according to description. EJT is indexed in: Ten characters 4, 19, 23, 26, 35, 37—38, 59, 67 and 68 are strictly the same used by Bertani Map showing records of Theraphosidqe minatrix Pocock,Avicularia hirschii Bullmer et al.

The syntypic series of Mygale laeta is constituted by specimens poorly conserved: Due to this, we considered Caribena laeta comb. Legs and palps with brown short body setae and orange brown long guard-setae.

Brachypelma smithi – Wikispecies

Male and female of Avicularia avicularia resemble Avicularia rufa and female of Avicularia hirschii by having leg IV longer than leg I. Species from Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay. Males and females of Avicularia variegata stat. Tibial apophysis in leg II, occurrence: Urticating setae of type II are present on abdomen dorsum. If on one hand this variation provides more information for cladistic analysis, on the other hand sometimes is difficult to establish limits for the states.

The cases of unjustified emendations in scientific names dedicated to people, published because of sex or the number of dedicatees, in the family Theraphosidae were analyzed. He described a new species, Homoeomma stradlingi O. The genus Avicularia Lamarck, is revised and all species are rediagnosed.

The ICZN states on the article Ninguna, 1 female, A.

Abdomen dorsum with long guard-setae homogeneously distributed, lateral orange short body setae and black short body setae forming a central longitudinal stripe. As this weakly-sclerotized area is barely present in most outgroup species, we consider them as having state 0. Thus, despite the reliable records, it is not possible to know which species are in Mexico. Brazil, known only from type locality Fig.


The idea of a bird-eating spider was ridiculed by Langsdorff and others at the time, who considered it a regression to a science full of mythology and legends Smith ab. The last taxonomic changes in the genus were proposed by Bertaniafter a revision of three Aviculariinae genera.

Avicularia geroldi

Posterior lateral spinnerets, distal article, shape: There is a dubious record of a single specimen from Cuba lacking any information on collectors and date.

Tibia I with discrete elevation covered by a cluster of setae in apical portion, on prolateral side Ybyrapora diversipes comb.

Theraphoeidae condition also appears in outgroup taxon Haplopelma minax Ornithoctoninae. Data matrix showing the distribution of character states in cladistic analysis. Posterior legs darker, blackish. Avicularia is one of the most popular genera in the pet trade, with thousands of specimens spread out all over the world. The examined specimen is not labeled as holotype.

In the cladistic analyses, representative species were included of seven therapphosidae the eight theraphosid subfamilies recognized by Ravenas well as species of all aviculariine genera and other available arboreal taxa with uncertain position, e.
