Advertisement So, I was looking into the Avicularia genus to decide which one to get and came across this beautiful specimen called Avicularia sp. tarapoto, only to learn that apparently it has been revised to Avicularia merianae. But unfortunately, there isn't much information on this species yet. And then there's Avicularia sp. "kolumbien" of which I can't find any official information at all. It's not even on the list of the Avicularia genus (I'm referring to the revision paper of March 2017). And these examples are just the tip of the iceberg. I also found @Tomoran's great blogpost about the Avicularia genus revision and that gave me an idea. I'd love to compile a list of short profiles for each species, nomen dubium/nudum, etc. according to Tom Moran's list, basically a simple guideline for research/resource and decision aid purposes. Also, I don't want to include husbandry/care in these profiles, because (and I think we can agree on that) it's pretty much the same throughout the whole genus and there're already some brilliant compilations for that: Avicularia care by @Venom1080 Avicularia husbandry by @viper69 Only if there's something special to know it should be mentioned in the profile. And that's how such a profile could look like (all the items like size, growth rate, etc. are "on average" of course ): Scientific name: Common name (if advisable/precise)/synonyms:Size (adult - male/female): Life expectancy (male/female): Growth rate (slow - medium - fast): Feeding response: Behaviour/temperament (sling - juvenile - adult): Special notes (e.g. special husbandry, origin, etc.): Pictures (or links):Now, all we need are experienced keepers (preferable people who actually keep or kept these species) to fill out this form (just copy it into your post) and I would link their posts to this list: Avicularia species (verified): Avicularia avicularia Avicularia glauca Avicularia variegata Avicularia minatrix Avicularia taunayi Avicularia juruensis Avicularia rufa Avicularia purpurea Avicularia hirschii Avicularia merianae Avicularia lynnae Avicularia caei Nomen dubium: Ischnocolus hirsutum Avicularia metallica Ischnocolus gracilis Avicularia arabica Avicularia aurantiaca Araneus hirtipes Avicularia testacea Avicularia detrita Avicularia hirsutissima Avicularia holmbergi Ischnocolus doleschalli Avicularia rapax Avicularia ochracea Avicularia walckenaerii Avicularia azuraklaasi Avicularia braunshauseni Avicularia geroldi Avicularia huriana Avicularia ulrichea Avicularia soratae Avicularia fasciculata Avicularia fasciculata clara Avicularia surinamensis Nomen nudum: Avicularia vestiaria New genera: Antillena rickwesti (ex Avicularia rickwesti) Caribena laeta (ex Avicularia laeta) Caribena versicolor (ex Avicularia Versicolor) Ybyrapora gamba (ex Avicularia gamba) Ybyrapora diversipes (ex Avicularia diversipes) Ybryapora sooretama (ex Avicularia sooretama) Comb. n. (or new combinations) Iridopelma leporina (ex Mygale leporina) Iridopelma plantaris (ex Mygale plantaris) Euathlus affinis (ex Avicularia affinis) Grammostola subvulpina (ex Avicularia subvulpina) Thrixopelma aymara – (ex Eurypelma aymara) I'm not sure if this last group really belongs here, but I included it for now. So, what do you think? Is it worth it? Or just a really bad idea? Would you be up for it? Are there any suggestions (for improvement or otherwise)? Remarks? Anything?
