Revalidating the taxonomic position of the Indian Ischnocolus spp. (Araneae: Theraphosidae)

Manju Siliwal , 2009

Abstract
The two Indian Ischnolocus species, I. decoratus and I. khasiensis are transferred to the genus Chilobrachys Karsch, 1891 based on presence and pattern of stridulatory setae on maxillae and chelicerae. Further, Ischnocolus decoratus is synonymised with Chilobrachys fimbriatus Pocock, 1899.
