    Default Changes to the nomenclature of some Grammostola species

    Gabriel, R, 2009, Notes on the Taxonomic Placement of Eurypelma borellii (Simon 1892) and Grammostola pulchripes Simon 1892 (Araneae: Theraphosidae), Exotiske Insekter no. 73. 7-13

    The species Avicularia borelli is moved to the genus Grammostola, Grammostola auriostriata is the junior synonym of G. pulchripes.

    Cheers, does this mean that G. aureostriata is no longer a valid name and that it's now pulchripes? I only have a limited understanding of taxonomy terms.

    What about G.mollicoma (Ausserer, 1875)?
    Wasn't G. pulchripes supposed to be synonim for G. mollicoma?

    Hi Craig

    Yep that is what it means.

    The paper is available as a download from the downloads section of this site.

    so is this saying the G.mollicoma is really a G.pulchripes ?

    Grammostola pulchripes was a junior synonym of G. mollicoma. Mr Gabriel in his paper rejects this synonymy, i.e. treats G. pulchripes and G. mollicoma as different, distinct species. Furthermore, G. aureostriata is a junior synonym of the revalidated species G. pulchripes.
