Poecilotheria

Poecilotheria is a genus of the family Theraphosidae containing various species of arboreal tarantula. This genus is known for vivid color patterns, fast movement, and potent venom compared to other tarantulas. The genus is native to Sri Lanka and India. The name Poecilotheria is derived from Greek "poikilos" - spotted and "therion" - wild beast.

Species[edit]

P. formosa is the same species as P. formosa was described by Pocock in 1899, while P. nallamalaiensis was described by Rao et al. in 2006, making P. formosa the older name and thus the senior synonym, and the valid name. GABRIEL, R. 2010. Poecilotheria nallamalaiensis Rao et al., 2006, a junior synonym of Poecilotheria formosa Pocock, 1899.

Poecilotheria pederseni is now Poecilotheria vittata: mf vittata Pocock, 1895....................India, Sri Lanka [1] P. v. Pocock, 1895a: 172 (Dm). P. pederseni Kirk, 2001: 77, f. 1-4, 9-22 (Dmf) [2]. P. pederseni Peters, 2005b: 96, f. 308-312 (mf).

New Species[edit]

Recently[when?] another species was found by an Undergraduate of Greenwich University, Palinda Perera. Species was named as Poecilotheria amarasekarai, named in honur of famous Sri Lankan biologist Dr. Hiran Amarasekara. The species is found only from Vavuniya, in Sri Lanka.

Note : The taxonomic paper on this species was never published so this species name is not valid. It is, in fact, the same species as Poecilotheria rajaei.
