Very nice pictures. The black one is what they call Lampropelma sp, isn't it?

Lampropelma is an obsolete genus name.
For example, the spider described by Abraham under the name Lampropelma violacoepes is in reality the famous Cyriopagopus sp Singapore (sp blue).



The 2 spiders on the pictures have "pet trade names" : "Lampropelma violacoepes and Lampropelma sp Borneo (or sp orange fringed)", BUT in reality they have not official names yet, thus, for calling them properly it's better to write "Ornithoctoninae sp ".

Hi Seigneur Veinen,

Lampropelma is an obsolete genus name.
For example, the spider described by Abraham under the name Lampropelma violacoepes is in reality the famous Cyriopagopus sp Singapore (sp blue).
L. violaceopes actually being a Cyriopagopus doesn't make Lampropelma obsolete, since Simon established the genus Lampropelma in 1892 with his description of L. nigerrimum.

My only point here is that the example you provide (L. violacoepes being a Cyriopagopus) does not, by itself, make Lampropelma obsolete.

Hi,

the Ornithoctoninae sp. ex. borneo is in fact a Lampropelma species. (pers. com. Volker VON WIRTH).
