Dwarf tarantula

Dwarf tarantulas, also known as sheet funnel-web spiders are a type of spider from the family Mecicobothriidae. Dwarf tarantulas are one of several families of the sub-order Mygalomorphae; this larger group also includes the true tarantulas.

Description[edit]

Dwarf tarantulas, as the name indicates, appear like other species of tarantula, but are physically much smaller. Many specimens are smaller than 1 cm in length, and the largest in the family are seldom larger than 2 cm. The spiders, like all Mygalomorphae, have downward pointing fangs; dwarf tarantulas also have long spinnerets.

Classification[edit]

There are currently only 4 recognized genera and 9 recognized species in this family. These are:

Hexura Simon, 1884

Hexurella Gertsch & Platnick, 1979

Mecicobothrium Holmberg, 1882

Megahexura Kaston, 1972
