Family: Theraphosidae Thorell,1869 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spiderfam:0010] Back

Gen. Sericopelma Ausserer , 1875 [urn:lsid:nmbe.ch:spidergen:00281 ]
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.
