Pamphobeteus Genus


SKU: N/A Category:


amphobeteus is a tarantula genus initially described by Reginald Innes Pocock in 1901. This group comprises some of the world’s largest spiders and is primarily found in South America, spanning countries such as Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, and Panama.

In terms of identification, male Pamphobeteus spiders exhibit a distinctive spoon-shaped or thin embolus in the palpal bulb, featuring elongated retrolateral superior and apical keels. They also possess a tibial apophysis with two branches on their first pair of legs, with the metatarsus closing between these branches. Females can be differentiated from most genera, except Xenesthis and Longilyra, by the sizable fused base of the spermathecae and short receptacles. Notably, Pamphobeteus differs from these two genera by having only ventral metatarsal scopulae on leg IV and the absence of lyriform stridulatory setae, respectively.
