Precise identification of arthropod species is fundamental in venom research, particularly in groups where taxonomy problems remain unsolved. High-performance liquid chromatography and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFMS) analysis of crude venoms of six tarantula species in the genus Brachypelma showed that the characteristic chromatographic and peptide ion profiles obtained can be used to discriminate amongst closely related species.
