Nevermind molecular, it's a lot to ask for. But the other aspects I mentioned are more reasonable I think.There has only been two groups lately that have done anything molecular with theraphosids including myself. Brachypelma was briefly touched by Petersens et al. 2007 and some group sequenced the mitochondrial genome of an Ornithochinous species. Both on GenBank.
I'm currently working with Poecilotheria (unpublished as of now), I doubt much else is going on, let alone Theraphosa...
What he basically means is that we're calling the former T.spinipes (T. sp.burgundy) = T.stirmi.Trying to find out more information myself. I'm not sure what you mean by "replacing."
Pato: I'm curious, why would sequence data be interesting, as opposed to all other intrinsic characters? By "integral [integrated?] kind of taxonomy," I assume you mean conforming to the requirement of total evidence. Yes?Whatever happens... I was hoping for a more detailed kind of paper description with a full genus analysis, ethology and ecology info as well as specific habitat data, and even anything molecular would be interesting. It also doesn't mention examination of T. blondi type or paratypes.
I know it's very difficult thing to achieve but, I think it's time for a more integral, kind of Theraphosidae taxonomy.
