(F. O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1897)

Brachypelma hamorii is a species of tarantula found in Mexico.[2] It has been confused with B. smithi; both have been called Mexican redknee tarantulas.[3] Many earlier sources referring to B. smithi either do not distinguish between the two species or relate to B. hamorii. B. hamorii is a terrestrial tarantula native to the western faces of the Sierra Madre Occidental and Sierra Madre del Sur mountain ranges in the Mexican states of Colima, Jalisco, and Michoacán.[3][4] The species is a large spider, adult females having a total body length over 50 mm (2 in) and males having legs up to 75 mm (3 in) long. Mexican redknee tarantulas are a popular choice for enthusiasts. Like most tarantulas, it has a long lifespan.[5]
