Wow! I didn’t know there were that many!

There are also T's that don't "flick" their urticating hairs. Avics for example have to *rub* them on you.

Didn't know Dolichothele were amongst those; definitely bumps them up my bucket list a bit more for D. diamantinensis. I love GBBS but wow, the hairs are nasty for me. Having something similar in coloration, but minus that would be a big plus.

Interestingly, a lot of those seem to be some of the more defensive NW’s....which makes sense.

I sort of think of T’s without urticating hairs being like declawed cats. More likely to bite (for ex) because they lack a “first” defense.

Most of them, yet there is also one in America. While I personally believe it to be misclasified, until official proof we are to take it as it is. Btw the same is true for Ischnocolus.
Aha, yes i think i have read this before. I was just thinking of H villosella and H gabenoensis

A lack of urticating hairs is just one of many reasons why D. diamantinensis is better than C. cyaneopubescens IMO.

I don’t understand how that works.

They just sorta angle the abdomen and try and press you with the hairs. You can also get haired via webbing as they'll still defensively place hairs within their web tubes.

When I was removing the molt from my juvenile female's enclosure, she waggled her butt at me as her attempt at a threat posture.

I thought it was funny, but I guess I should've taken the "threat" more seriously, because I ended up with quite a few of the hairs from her molt on me anyway, and it's very itchy. Touché, butt waggler.
