    Maybe a weird question, but why is "Haplopelma Lividum" listed as "Cyriopagopus lividum" on the English Wikipedia?

    The best is Pterinochilus murinus page in French version. 'coma' (Ykes!) is listed in the possible symptoms of a "morsure".

    "Morsure" <--- love the sound of that word :)

    On the Spanish version 'OBT' is listed "UICN VU" (vulnerable).

    On the Portoguese ones there's just few infos.

    The Italian one didn't exists. And so on. That's Wikipedia.

    Because of a recent paper written by Smith and Jacobi, synonymising Cyriopagopus and Haplopelma. The paper is pending WSC review to make the change official.

    The paper fails to recognize the gender of Cyriopagopus making it Cyriopagopus lividus. That and many other issues makes me believe it might be rejected instead of entered in the WSC.
