  • Stenotarsus scissistylus gen. et sp. n. (Theraphosidae: Theraphosinae), eine Vogelspinne aus Französisch Guyana

    Marc Tesmoingt, Gunter Schmidt ,2002

    The genus Stenotarsus gen. nov. closely related to Aphonopelma Pocock, 1901 is established for South American species formerly desgnated as Eurypelma group A according to SIMON 1892 where metatarsus I containing many spines is as long as or not as long as tibia I. It differs from Aphonopelma by a procurved fovea (fig. 13), urticating hairs of type 1 and 3, a distally widened embolus (fig. 3) and spermathecae widely fused (fig. 19 - 21) with two little heads of different shape. S scissistylus is a medium-sized species. It's embolus appears deeply rutted (fig. 4) The relations to other species living in the Guyanas, North Brazil and Venezuela are discussed.
