  • Profile picture of Stuart Longhorn who took this action.

    Stuart Longhorn commented on an older version of Geographic Range:

    Only the first part is correct, central pacific coastal mexico, which is mostly scrub-thorn forest. They do NOT occur in rainforest, and they certainly NOT are endemic to USA or Panama. The first cited source is an unreliable webpage, which now is not functional, the second source is a credible reference that only cites the species as endemic to pacific coastal Mexico

    There's something wrong with the HTML in this article. It looks like there's an unclosed italics tag somewhere.

    Stuart Longhorn commented on "Threats":

    The Mexican redleg tarantula is mainly threatened by habitat loss and environmental degradation. They were previously threatened by capture for the pet trade (2), but now the pressure of illegal exports have likely been reduced by captive breeding.

    Stuart Longhorn commented on "Threats":

    The information is out of data. The greatest threat is habitat loss and environmental degradation. Captive breeding has effectively removed the threat of pet-trade collection
