    Lot to run through here... is this an accurate way to sum it all up?

    Omothymus rafni = NEW
    Lampropelma violaceopes = Omothymus violaceopes
    Lampropelma nigerrimum arboricola (the old Lampropelma sp. "Bornea Black"?) = Phormingochilus arboricola
    Omothymus thorelli = No longer exists, same as Omothymus schioedtei
    Phormingochilus carpenteri (the old Cyriopagopus sp. "Sulawesi Black"?) = Lampropelma carpenteri
    Phormingochilus kirki = No longer exists, same as Lampropelma carpenteri
    Phormingochilus fuchsi = Omothymus fuchsi
    Phormingochilus tigrinus = NEW (no longer the same as Phormingochilus everetti)
    Omothymus dromeus = Melognathus dromeus

    I knew L. n. arboricola was the old L. sp. "Borneo Black".
    Now, I'm not sure if P. carpenteri was C. sp. "Sulawesi Black".

    I heard this article still needs to be approval, anyone can confirm this info?

    Also, there few keepers in doubt if P. fuchsi could be C. sp. "Sumatran Tiger", anyone know something about it too?

    It was a guess based off of what someone saw/read in the paper. Not confirmed by anybody as far as I know.

    Yes, carpenteri is hobby sp. "Sulawesi Black" that was confirmed in Smith and Jacobi 2015 (They compared Jacobi's hobby stock).

    In response to sp. "Sumatra Tiger" being fuchsi... "Omothymus fuchsi is not Sumatran Tiger - completely different location , Sumatran tiger is not even from Sumatra, it’s from small island on the western coast of Sumatra (don’t remember the name) but O.fuschi is from Central Sumatra -far away" So it seems it was a guess without any supportive evidence.

    Thanks man. Tbh, I've seen the article and noticed that fuchsi is from Sumatra, so I thought: I think people are believing they are "Sumatran Tiger" based only in the location; which is now I know its not accurate either. Lol.

    How have you been, btw?

    Man!!! You guys are in a whole different league. I like them because they’re cool, and I like watching them kill stuff in their enclosures. I wouldn’t even consider reading something about why they are called this, that, or the other thing, and back again. I don’t even really care where they come from as long as they do the two aforementioned things for me. Seriously, the only reason I read this thread was because I was eating fried chicken, had grease on my fingers, and didn’t want to get it on my tablet changing threads (couldn’t make that up, huh?).

    Now, I must withdraw and be humbled by you. I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!
