Eine neue Psalmopoeus-Art aus Venezuela, Psalmopoeus langenbucheri sp. n. (Araneae: Theraphosidae: Aviculariinae)

Gunter Schmidt, Michael Bullmer, Martin Thierer-Lutz ,2006

Psalmopoeus langenbucheri sp. n. differs from most Psalmopoeus spew des yet known in its small size. The body length of the female (holotype) is 37,0 mm and of the male 21 ,5 mm (without chelicera and spinnerets). Its pal pal bulb with the long and thin embolus is similar to that of some species of Tapinauchenius , its length is 3,5 mm. In the female the length of the receptacula seminis is 1,6 mm, the spermathecae belong to the P. reduncus- type. There are some differences between the spermathecae of subadult and adult females.

Avicularia hirschii sp. n. (Araneae: Theraphosidae: Aviculariinae), eine neue Vogelspinnenart aus Ekuador

Michael Bullmer, Martin Thierer-Lutz, Gunter Schmidt ,2006

Avicularia hirschii is one of the smaller species of the genus. The male has instead of a tibia spur a lot of thick black spines similar to those of Avicularia versicolor (Walckenaer, 1837) from Martinique and Guadeloupe. Tufts of red hairs on the tarsi and the opisthosoma arranged in two rows framing the black middle section are typical. The length of the urticating hairs of type II is 0,10 - 0,17 mm. The embolus is long and tapered. The spermathecae are similar to those of A. azuraklaasi Tesmoingt, 1996 from Peru. Juvenile spiders are almost white coloured with black stripe on the opisthosoma. There is no Christmas tree pattern as in other Avicularia species.
