Family: Theraphosidae Thorell,1869 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0010] Detail
In synonymy:
Brachypelmides Schmidt & Krause, 1994 = Brachypelma Simon, 1891 (Smith, 1995: 159)
Gen. Brachypelma Simon, 1891 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:00200] Detail
N.B.: Removed from the synonymy of Euathlus Ausserer, 1875 by Schmidt, 1992a: 10. Considered a senior synonym of Brachypelmides Schmidt & Krause, 1994b: 7, type Brachypelmides klaasi Schmidt & Krause, 1994 by Smith, 1995: 159. Schmidt, 1997d and Schmidt, 1998f did not accept that synonymy, but failed to present evidence that the species he would place in Brachypelmides represent the sister group of the remaining species of Brachypelma (or of some other group entirely). Brachypelma recovered as diphyletic by Turner et al., 2018: 99.
Transferred to other genera:
Brachypelma angustum Valerio, 1980 -- see Sericopelma
Brachypelma embrithes (Chamberlin & Ivie, 1936) -- see Sericopelma
