Zur Kenntnis der Gattung Phormictopus Pocock, 1901 - einem Faunenelement der Grossen Antillen (Mygalomorphae: Theraphosidae: Theraphosinae)

Jan-Peter Rudloff , 2008

Abstract
Hitherto the genus Phormictopus POCOCK, 1901 consisted of 14 species and 2 subspecies of which 5 were reported from South America. This article reduces the species number to 12. Five new species are decribed, 4 new synonyms declared, 3 nomina dubia (missing types), and 3 of the former species belong to other genera (now status “incertae sedis”). The distribution of the genus Phormictopus is restricted to the Greater Antilles.
