The World Spider Catalog, V15 by N. I. Platnick (c) 2000 - 2014 AMNH

Family: THERAPHOSIDAE

Gen. Haplopelma Simon, 1892 [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidergen:00229]

N.B.: considered a senior synonym of Melopoeus Pocock, 1895 by Raven, 1985a: 116 (but see also Schmidt, 2010b, who considered the type species a member of Ornithoctonus Pocock, 1892 and therefore considered Melopoeus the earliest available name for the remaining species).

Transferred to other genera:
H. chrysothrix Schmidt & Samm, 2005 -- see Ornithoctonus aureotibialis.
H. costale Schmidt, 1998 -- see Ornithoctonus.

In synonymy:
H. huwenum (Wang, Peng & Xie, 1993) = H. schmidti von Wirth, 1991 (Zhu & Zhang, 2008: 420)
