Family: Barychelidae Simon, 1889 []
Back | Genus list
N.B.: the Trichopelmatinae (genera Trichopelma and Psalistops) considered to belong to the Theraphosidae rather than to Barychelidae by Raven, 1994: 333, but no phylogenetic argument is provided for this change; Trichopelma was finally transferred to the Theraphosidae (Guadanucci, 2014: 514) as well as Psalistops (Mori & Bertani, 2020: 37), so in fact Trichopelmatinae is now transferred to Theraphosidae; the family is not monophyletic per Kulkarni, Wood & Hormiga, 2023: 487, f. 5.
