Family: Theraphosidae Thorell,1869 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0010] Detail
In synonymy:
Harpaxictis Simon, 1892 = Sericopelma Ausserer, 1875 (Raven, 1985a: 153, sub Mygalarachne)
Gen. Sericopelma Ausserer, 1875 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:00281] Detail
N.B.: removed from the synonymy of Mygalarachne Ausserer, 1871 (considered instead a nomen dubium) by Lucas et al., 1991: 229, contra Raven, 1985a: 153, who also considered that name a senior synonym of Harpaxictis Simon, 1892 ["tentatively placed" as a nomen dubium by Gabriel & Longhorn, 2011: 163] and Nhandu Lucas, 1983, but that latter synonymy has not been accepted by later workers.
Transferred to other genera:
Sericopelma carapoense (Lucas, 1983) -- see Nhandu
In synonymy:
Sericopelma balboanum (Chamberlin, 1940, T from Aphonopelma) = Sericopelma rubronitens Ausserer, 1875 (Valerio, 1980b: 287).
Sericopelma consocius (Chamberlin, 1940, T from Aphonopelma) = Sericopelma rubronitens Ausserer, 1875 (Valerio, 1980b: 287).
Nomen dubium:
Sericopelma striatum (Ausserer, 1871a: 195, originally as Harpaxibius striatus, generic name preoccupied and replaced as Harpaxictus striatus by Simon, 1892a: 144, Venezuela, holotype of unknown sex, missing abdomen) -- Gabriel & Longhorn, 2011: 163, f. 2a.
