It's just me or recently jumped out an helluva of revisions, name changes, genus moving and etc? Still my brain after all of those years fails, when in front of a 0.1 "cobalt blue" to "view" a C.lividum instead of an Haplopelma lividum.

Basically I'm a sort of crack addicted of T's old names :embarrassed:

There's always taxon. changes IMO. However, there's going to be another revision coming out soon of another genus.

I think it's a good thing that Australian tarantula are being described or revised. There is so much unknown about them.

@Chris LXXIX , don't worry, you'll catch up. And by the time you do, they'll be revised again :p

@viper69, thanks for the link, bookmarked it for reading later.
@Chris LXXIX, revisions are inevitable, go to the WSC and search for Cyriopagopus lividum/lividus. Not everyone is in agreement with the Haplopelma revision. All mine are still labelled Haplopelma, as with many long time breeder/sellers still list theirs as such on the web sites. When the BTS, ATS and WSC are in agreement with the revisions, I'll put on the new labels. Lol!

I was really hoping my Phlogius sp. "Black" was going to be described. Too much to hope for, I guess.

I understand your point of course, just that like Ajax (James Remar in "The Warriors" movie) loved to say I'm in total: "Ah, F-Word that" :)

This paper is about the genus Phlochiellus not Phlogius.
This is an mostly Asian dwarf genus and not Australian.

Oh wow...I feel a bit dumb now...
I got confused because of the Selenocosmiine reference, I always mix that up with Selenotypus. thank you for correcting that!

Yeah, I'm aware, but the species I brought up hasn't been formally described yet. Where it ends up, nobody knows ;)
