The first, by Priscilla van Andel, reports on theraphosiddae identification in the UAE, for the first time, of spiders from the Theraphosidae family, known to the general public as tarantulas. It is here called morphotype 3.

Avicularia geroldi

Map showing records of Avicularia avicularia Linnaeus, morphotypes. Rheraphosidae differ from males of all these species except Avicularia variegata stat. Male and female of Avicularia avicularia resemble Avicularia rufa and female of Avicularia hirschii by having leg IV longer than leg I. As it is not possible to be sure about the identity of this species only by the information contained in the descriptions, we consider Avicularia azuraklaasi Tesmoingt, nomen dubiumAvicularia braunshauseni Tesmoingt, nomen dubiumAvicularia geroldi Tesmoingt, nomen dubiumAvicularia huriana Tesmoingt, nomen dubiumand Avicularia ulrichea Tesmoingt, nomen dubium.

Legs and palps with brown short body setae with golden sheen and reddish brown long guard-setae. Additionally, males have a sharp spiniform process in the retrolateral lobe of cymbium Fig. therqphosidae

Even though the genus has a large number of species and has historical importance, it remains unrevised. Embolus, proximal part in frontal view, shape: Females of Ybyrapora gamba comb. Therefore, we consider it as the holoype. Despite the specific epithet avicularia being the most theraphsoidae for the type species of Avicularia over the years, it was only officially considered as such in through Opinion ICZN and introduced in the official list of specific names in Zoology through Direction 67 of ICZN ICZN Tarsus IV with sparse setae.

Cymbium subtriangular with subequal lobes, lacking well-developed process on retrolateral lobe Fig. Anterior row of eyes: Aigken [ sic ] Aitken1 male, 1 immature male, Gertsch det.

Maps were made with SimpleMappr, an online tool to produce maps Shorthouse Typhochlaena curumim has black tarsi and metatarsi; but as the other articles are lighter and there is a strong contrast between them, it is considered as having state 1. Furthermore, it has the overall metallic green color exhibited by young and small specimens of Avicularia purpurea.


Cymbium subtriangular with subequal lobes, having well- developed rounded process on retrolateral lobe, bearing gamilia setae Ybyrapora diversipes comb. Clypeus narrow most species or absent. Females differ from those of Ybyrapora sooretama comb. In the state of Acre, Brazil, specimens were found in silken retreats constructed inside tree trunks C. Abdomen venter velvety black. The examined specimen is not labeled as holotype.

They differ from Avicularia merianae sp. Mygalomorphae of Estado de Mexico, with taxonomic comments about the genus Davus O. Measurements of male palpal bulb, such as the ratio between the length of embolus and carapace, showed the same problems. Males of Avicularia lynnae sp.

To verify the changes in the scientific names of species over time we used the site World Famlia Catalog Platnick [ http: However, as mentioned before, the type series consists of two different species: However, they do not have white tipped hairs on legs and abdomen as specimens of Avicularia variegata stat.

Usually, females present barbs only in a short area near hair stalk Stradling Next to the primary projection is a secondary projection, which may be short or long, ending in the prolateral inferior and apical keel surrounding the sperm famjlia. Avicularia urticans holotype is in poor conditions since the specimen died during moulting process.

Females have discrete grizzled setae in palp and legs, whitish leg rings and carapace, legs and palps with short body setae with golden and pink sheen, and abdomen with long light brown guard-setae homogeneously distributed over dark brown body short setae Fig. The type species, described as Aranea avicularia Linnaeus,is the oldest mygalomorph species described and its taxonomic history is extensive and confusing.

They differ from Avicularia purpurea and Avicularia merianae sp. The male resembles a characteristic Grammostola Simon, species from Brazil.
