The theraphosine genus Hemirrhagus Simon 1903 is revised based on the examination of the type specimens and additional material collected in Mexico. Eight species were redescribed and illustrated. The males of Hemirrhagus ocellatus, Hemirrhagus papalotl, and Hemirrhagus stygius, formerly unknown, are described for the first time. Five new species were recognized and are newly described and illustrated. Hence, Hemirrhagus comprises 21 valid species, all endemic to Mexico. All species are keyed… 
Taxonomic revision of the genus Crassicrus Reichling & West, 1996 (Araneae: Theraphosidae: Theraphosinae), with the description of additional keels on the embolus
The genus Crassicrus is recorded from Mexico for the first time, increasing the number of known theraphine genera in the country to 16 and a new taxonomical nomenclature for these keels is proposed.
Systematic revision of Mexican threatened tarantulas Brachypelma (Araneae: Theraphosidae: Theraphosinae), with a description of a new genus, and implications on the conservation
Tarantula phylogenetic analyses using molecular and morphological characters and taxonomical changes for CITES and for the Mexican Laws for wildlife protection show the non-monophyly of Brachypelma is shown.
A new genus of Theraphosid spider from Mexico, with a particular palpal bulb structure (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Theraphosinae)
Females of Magnacarina gen. nov. have a single reduced and strongly sclerotized spermatheca, with an apical lobe projecting ventrally, and with a uterus externus that is longer and wider than the sperMatheca.
On the trapdoor spiders of Mexico: description of the first new species of the spider genus Aptostichus from Mexico and the description of the female of Eucteniza zapatista (Araneae, Mygalomorphae, Euctenizidae)
Eucteniza zapatista is the fourth species of the genus where a female is known, and one of fourteen species described for the genus to date, which has the highest species diversity in the family Euctenizidae.
Urticating setae of tarantulas (Araneae: Theraphosidae): Morphology, revision of typology and terminology and implications for taxonomy
The typology of urticating setae was revised, and types I, III and IV were redescribed, and the terminology of “barbs” and “reversed barbs’ was revised and redefined, newly emphasizing the real direction of barbs.
Systematic revision of Brachypelma red-kneed tarantulas (Araneae : Theraphosidae), and the use of DNA barcodes to assist in the identification and conservation of CITES-listed species
Morphological and molecular evidence are concordant and together provide robust hypotheses for delimiting Mexican red-kneed tarantula species and DNA barcoding is shown to be useful for species-level identification and for potentially preventing black market trade in these spiders.
Diversity of iron cave-dwelling mygalomorph spiders from Pará, Brazil, with description of three new species (Araneae)
The high number of juveniles suggests two alternatives: some species could be using the hypogean environment as reproductive shelter; the hypospecies environment is used as a refuge by immatures.
Stridulation by cosmetid harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones)
Comparative morphological data supports the hypothesis that there are cosmetid harvestmen that may use surface features on the chelicerae and pedipalps to produce vibrations which may function as a secondary defense mechanism.
Behavior and Biology of Mygalomorphae
In this chapter, some the main topics on Mygalomorphae biology, including behavior and ecology are reviewed, including Behavior and ecology.


On the Avicularia (Araneae: Theraphosidae: Aviculariinae) species from Uruguay
Avicularia tigrina and Avicularia alticeps, originally described in the genera Ischnocolus Ausserer 1875 and Pterinopelma Pocock 1901, respectively, are herein considered nomina dubia since their types are presumed lost.
Revision, cladistic analysis, and zoogeography of Vitalius, Nhandu, and Proshapalopus; with notes on other Theraphosine Genera (Araneae, Theraphosidae)
The 16 species of the South American theraphosine genera Vitalius Lucas, Silva Junior & Bertani, 1993; Nhandu Lucas, 1981; and Proshapalopus Mello-Leitao, 1923 are described, keyed, illustrated,
Description of Catumiri n. gen. and three new species (Theraphosidae: Ischnocolinae)
The new Ischnocolinae genus Catumiri is described. The species Cenobiopelma argentinense (Mello-Leit o, 1934), considered a junior synonym of Oligoxystre Vellard, 1924, is transferred to the present
A new African arboreal genus and species of theraphosid spider (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Stromatopelminae) which lacks spermathecae
Summary A new monospecific genus and species of arboreal theraphosid, Xenodendrophila gabrieli, is described from mountains near Arusha, northern Tanzania. This new genus is related to the
Two new species of Pamphobeteus Pocock 1901 (Araneae : Mygalomorphae : Theraphosidae) from Brazil, with a new type of stridulatory organ
Two new species of Pamphobeteus Pocock 1901 are described from Brazil and a new type of stridulatory organ is described from legs III and IV of P. crassifemur sp.
The tarsal scopula condition appears to have no relation to spider size and should be used in phylogenetic analysis of Ischnocolinae because it provides information on the character variability within the subfamily.
Theraphosidae Egg-sac Types
The late-1970s/early-1980s marked the beginning of modern arachnoculture and saw the first attempts to captive breed theraphosids to supply a commercial market and many more genera were imported to broaden the range of spiders available to the hobbyist.
The lengthy and costly sperm induction, the widespread display by body vibrations of courting males, multiple mating strategies of both sexes and the absence of sexual cannibalism are considered.
Abstract A first attempt to homologize male palpal bulb structures of theraphosine spiders is made, with the aim of providing systematic characters. The morphology and distribution of palpal bulb
Una nueva especie de "Hemirrhagus" Simon, 1903 (Theraphosidae: Theraphosinae) de Chiapas, México
The males of this species differ from other of the genus in the absence of tibial spurs, which is the first record of Hemirrhagus in Chiapas Mexico apart from fossil records found in amber.
