Okay maybe that was a bit harsh.

Here you go: World Spider Catalog

The list is not correct, it should be Avicularia cf. metallica and Avicularia diversipes instead of A. fasciculata

A. diversipes and A. fasciculata are two valid sp., aren't they?
Yeah, we've been through this before, Falk, no? A. diversipes is also included in the list, and just because there's no A. fasciculata and A. metallica in the hobby doesn't make them non-existant species. BTW, the list is missing A. gamba and A. sooretama. You should use the World Spider Catalog for this purpose, like Jason already linked you, it's the best source.

seen that pokies have 16 species
15. P. nallamalaiensis is listed in the Wikipedia page, but it was synonymised with P. formosa last year.
