    Spermathecae and other differences on B.epicuraenum and B.vagans

    Post by jemzkrux on Thu Aug 04, 2011 7:35 am

    As much as im intrigued with these specimens and their differences, I find myself asking one thread in the venomlist
    about it.

    Lucky enough, I got an answer..


    To help answer your question on the epicureanum/vagans differences I have come up
    with a few clues to take note of.
    One thing to get on the table first is per Mikhail Bagaturov (tarantulas.tropica.ru)
    is that there are two color morphs with the vagans that have mildly differing color
    which can further confuse everyone.
    The B. vagans (Ausserer 1875) has a much larger distribution area compared to the epicureanum
    which has a limited area only in the Yucatan peninsula.
    The B. epicureanum (Chamberlin 1925) is smaller in legspan and paler than the vagans upon postmolt.
    Further digging into this debacle I found some photos of each one's spermathecae and I do see
    a difference between the two. Here are two photos:
    First photo is B. epicureanum
    Second photo is B. vagans

    -Fang
