spiders: release of urticating hairs by some Aviculariinae (Araneae, Theraphosidae).
Tarantulas are the largest spiders in the world, belonging to the order Mygalomorph

Notes on new and rare American Mygalomorph
This is a tribute to his contribution to studies on Indian mygalomorph
Although, Gravely (1915, 1935) in his publications on Indian mygalomorph
spiders included the genus Conothele Thorell 1878 based on a few unidentified specimens in the Indian Museum (now Zoological Survey of India), the genus was never formally described nor any species listed from India.
Combining genetics and geospatial analyses to infer population extinction in mygalomorph
spiders endemic to the Los Angeles region.
No other reports about spiderling emergence are available for most mygalomorph
First Mesozoic mygalomorph
spiders from the Lower Cretaceous of Siberia and Mongolia, with notes on the system and evolution of the infraorder Mygalomorphae (Chelicerata: Araneae).
This aggressive behavior is not commonly reported for mygalomorph
spiders (Jackson & Pollard 1990; Shillington & Verrel 1997).
A revision of the funnel-web mygalomorph
spider subfamily Ischnothelinae (Araneae, Dipluridae).
Few studies have been conducted on the reproductive behavior of tarantulas in general (Baerg 1958; Minch 1979), and the small amount of published literature that contains detailed behavioral descriptions (Shillington & Verrel 1997; Jackson & Pollard 1990) suggests that the traditional portrayal of mygalomorph
display behavior as "simple" (Platnick 1971; Foelix 1996) is misleading.
