    Default "Aphonopelma" chalcodes adult female

    this is one of my chalcodes girls, freshly moulted...pardon my crappy photographs...just wanted to show off the colours. THIS is why this is my favourite genus...they hide behind brown/beige colouration and then shock you with vibrant colours

    I noticed the quotes in your title, and recall some mention to the effect elsewhere, of which I may have misread... but are we in some danger of the Genus being renamed, or perhaps just a subset of species currently described as Aphonopelma? If the answer is yes, either directly or by proxy, is there a paper somewhere online?

    James could be just airing on the side of caution Mark .. pre-empting and all that

    Aphonopelma seem to have a question mark above some of the species .... A. aberrans to be drifting into Euathlus at some time for example.

    well it's in a recent journal, a discussion by Andy Smith on the nomenclature of the North American Theraphosidae. there's a thread on the main discussion forum about this...
    it does seem likely this will change, though we really don't know til anything is specifically decided upon
