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]

Poecilotheria (Simon, 1885)
Type species: Poecilotheria fasciata

In synonymy:
Poecilotheria gadgili (Tikader, 1977) = Poecilotheria regalis
Poecilotheria nallamalaiensis (Rao et al., 2006) = Poecilotheria formosa
Poecilotheria pederseni (Kirk, 2001) = Poecilotheria vittata
Poecilotheria pococki = Poecilotheria smithi

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 honour 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.
