    Default Nhandu tripepii is a senior synonym of Nhandu vulpinus

    • Nagahama, R.H., Fukushima, C.S. & Rogerio Bertani. 2009. Nhandu tripepii is a senior synonym of Nhandu vulpinus (Araneae: Theraphosidae). ZOOLOGIA. 26(3): 578-580.


    Abstract:
    The holotype of Eurypelma tripepii Dresco, 1984 from the state of Para, Brazil, is revised and illustrated. It's palpal bulb and tibial apophysis are similar in shape to species of Nhandu Lucas, 1983. Therefore, the species is transferred to the genus Nhandu, establishing the new combination Nhandu tripepii (Dresco, 1984) comb. nov., which is considered a senior synonym of Nhandu vulpinus (Schmidt, 199 syn. nov. The protuberances present on the holotype's chelicerae are here considered a morphological anomaly.
