As I understand it, lack of hair on the patella means burgundy. Am I right in sayin this? Why are you banned by the way?

Yes you are correct, there are also differences in the spermathecae although as an adult specimen the lack of hair on the patella is the easiest was to ID.....

I got banned for posting up a message a Mod sent me, I think I'm allowed back at the end of the month.....

The paper hasn't been released as of yet so sadly in text we still all have to refer to these as Theraphosa sp. "Burgundy" although I already have both mine labeled up as Theraphosa spinipes.......

Sadly it can take years before its official. Then i hope they will do some study work with the Pamphobeteus sp. "Santo Domingo goliath":)

It's of my opinion that since allegedly Lasiodora spinipes (Ausserer 1871) is what is being transferred to the genus Theraphosa, everyone should be calling these things Lasiodora spinipes until the transfer is official.

That would maybe be somewhat feasible if the whole of the Lasiodoria genus wasn't as messed up as it is itself, although it does kinda look like a Theraphosa no???

:rolleyes:
