Hi,

New article Rogerio Bertani, Carolina S. Fukushima, Nagahama R. H.

Nhandu tripepii is a senior synonym of Nhandu vulpinus (Araneae: Theraphosidae). ZOOLOGIA. 26(3): 578-580.

The holotype of Eurypelma tripepii Dresco, 1984 from the state of Para, Brazil, is revised and illustrated. It's palpal bulb and tibial apophysis are similar in shape to species of Nhandu Lucas, 1983. Therefore, the species is transferred to the genus Nhandu, establishing the new combination Nhandu tripepii (Dresco, 1984) comb. nov., which is considered a senior synonym of Nhandu vulpinus (Schmidt, 1998) syn. nov. The protuberances present on the holotype's chelicerae are here considered a morphological anomaly.

Hi,

2 new species from Cyriocosmus genus.

PÉREZ-MILES, F. & D. WEINMANN (2009): Two new species of Cyriocosmus Simon, 1903 from Peru and the highest altitude record for the genus (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Theraphosinae). Revista Iberica de Aracnologia 17: 29-35.

Abstact:
Two new species of Cyriocosmus (Theraphosinae) from Perú are described
and illustrated. Both differ from most other species of Cyriocosmus in the absence
of a stripped pattern on the abdomen and males with the retrolateral
branch of tibial apophysis distally incrassate and flattened. The cladistic relationships
within the genus are reanalyzed including these new taxa. Specimens
of the new species were collected at altitudes of between 2200 and 3000 m,
these records constituting the highest altitudinal record for the genus.

Cheers:Tamas

Hi,

GALLON, R. C. (2009): Two new Pterinochilus species from Kenya (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Harpactirinae). Bull. Br. Arachnol. Soc. 14(9): 361-364.

Two new theraphosid spider species from East Africa are
described: Pterinochilus raygabrieli sp. n. from south-central
Kenya and Pterinochilus andrewsmithi sp. n. from northwestern
Kenya. The two new species are illustrated and
diagnosed from their congeners.

Cheers:Tamas

Hi,

Strugo, I. et al (2009) Anaphylactic Reaction to a Spider (Chaetopelma aegyptica) Bite in a Dog, Israel Journal of Veterinary Medicine 64(3), pp. 84 - 87.

Abstract:

Chaetopelma aegyptiaca is the largest spider native to Israel. Although it belongs to a highly poisonous spider family, the Israeli subspecies is not venomous but its bite has been reported as extremely painful by people. Its toxicity to dogs is unknown; however several fatal canine cases were reported in association with spider bites of the same family. A one-year-old, intact, male toy-terrier presented with chief complaints of excitement, vomiting, tremor, diarrhea and hypersalivation that appeared shortly and acutely after it had been bitten by Chaetopelma aegyptiaca. Anaphylactic shock was tentatively diagnosed based on the history and clinical signs. The dog was immediately treated with oxygen, intravenous crystalloids, diphenhydramine and ampicillin. Initial improvement was observed within one hour. The present favorable response to therapy suggests that anaphylactic shock due to C. aegyptiaca bite can be treated successfully without using epinephrine.

Hi,

PANZERA, A., C. PERDOMO & F. PÉREZ-MILES (2009): Spiderling emergence in the tarantula Grammostola mollicoma (Ausserer 1875): an experimental approach (Araneae,Theraphosidae). The Journal of Arachnology 37: 92-96.

Abstract:
The ability of Grammostola mollicoma (Ausserer 1875) spiderlings (Araneae, Theraphosidae) to emerge from
the cocoon without the assistance of their mother was tested experimentally. We created two experimental groups with 23
cocoons in each group. In one of the groups we cut the cocoon wall creating an opening; in the other group, the cocoon
remained untouched. We found no differences between the groups in either the number or instar composition of the
spiderlings that emerged. The spiderlings were able to emerge without the assistance of their mother. The emerging instars
in both groups were precocious compared to previous suggestions in the literature.
