If one has specimens of this "Tortuguero" species, then an identification to the genus Brachypelma, Tlitocatl, or neither could be made since good characters for both genera have been published.Technically neither because it's not a described species, the correct label for now would be Theraphosinae sp. "Tortuguero"
Brachypelma albiceps possesses strongly scelortized spermathecal baseplates (absent or weakly developed in Tliltocatl) in females and males do not posses a prolateral inferior keel on the palpal bulb (present in Tliltocatl) as well as having a short embolus (longer in Tliltocatl). These characters are primarily why B. albiceps belongs in Brachypelma as opposed to Tliltocatl.Hi everyone!
Is there anyone here know the reason why the B.Albiceps stayed in Brachypelma and not transferred to Tliltocatl?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
