I protest :rage: this is an armed assault against Latin by the arachno-pundits. No more 'bird eater' (Avicularia) all of a sudden but Caribena :banghead:

Plus Ibyrapora :banghead: :banghead:

lol

So I'm seeing nomen dudium next to the aurantica, I just picked one up. If the name doesn't exsist anymore, what is is it? @mygale

In zoological nomenclature, a nomen dubium(Latin for "doubtful name", plural nomina dubia) is a scientific name that is of unknown or doubtful application. In bacteriological nomenclature, nomina dubia may be placed on the list of rejected names by the Judicial Commission. The meaning of these names is uncertain.


What happens to my sp. Amazonica?

"Ybyrapora" what a mouthful. Now I have to tell hubby his beloved versicolor is no longer an Avic and he's going to be so confused...

Good question. I have ??? sp. Amazonica as well. It was already in la la land before now.

The junior synonym species won't exist anymore, but the species that are considered nomen dubium (doubtful label) were not examined or holotypes/paratypes missing. Therefore, they couldn't be studied. Fukushima states "The Avicularia species considered nomina dubia and nomina nuda by World Spider Catalog (2016) do not have their status changed." So I expect the WSC will still have them listed.

So I'm seeing nomen dudium next to the aurantica, I just picked one up. If the name doesn't exsist anymore, what is is it? @mygale
They state aurantiaca is most likely Avicularia rufa but they can't be sure because the holotype & paratype are missing.

Also, they imply hobby juruensis is actually Avicularia rufa.
Quote:
"For many years the name A. juruensis has been applied to specimens that have vivid yellow leg rings and grizzled setae on legs and palps, that are commonly found in the states of Mato Grosso and Rondônia, Brazil. They have spermathecae with midwidth not expanded, developed prominence on palpal bulb and leg IV longer than leg I. However, A. juruensis syntypes have whitish leg rings and lack setae with conspicuous whitish apex on legs, spermathecae with midwidth expanded, palpal bulb with well-developed prominence, and leg IV as long as leg I. The characters found in these specimens formerly known as A. juruensis match, in fact, with those of A. rufa. Thus, we conclude the name A. juruensis is being mistakenly applied to specimens of A. rufa."

The real juruensis maybe from the urticans complex or even sp. Peru Purple. I'm not sure.

A. sp. Amazonica is possibly Avicularia variegata

A. sp. Tarapoto is Avicularia merianae, I'm fairly certain of that, they are quite unique.

*Remember this is just my take on the revision, I could be wrong. Until Avicularia hobby stock is examined, put your label makers down.
The species with a new genus name, go ahead and relabel.

It's quite the mouthful but I think it's a fitting name for such a colorful and unique T!

What I want to do - what I really, really want to do is do barcode sequencing from all hobby species and find out how they are related. Of course, it wouldn't be so easy to compare it to wild cought and taxonomically identified specimen, but at least you could sort out the hobby Ts.

So my Avicularia rickwesti is now Antillena rickwesti? It is its own in the genus? :wacky:
