Abstract: ABSTRACT. Phoneutria bahiensis Simó & Brescovit, 2001 is a large ctenid spider inhabiting the states of Bahia and Espírito Santo, Brazil. Considering that it is probably endemic, this species was included in the Brazilian red book of threatened species. Here, we predict the distribution range of P. bahiensis using 19 bioclimatic variables in the model design. The most septentrional record for this spider was indicated for northern Bahia. The model predicts that the distribution range covers the Atlantic Forest… Show more

“…In the Amazon region, Gasnier et al (2002) and Torres & Gasnier (2010) offered data on the adult size, sexual dimorphism, habitat use, and temporal changes in body size structure of P. fera Perty 1833 and P. reidyi (F.O.P.-Cambridge 1897). Dias et al (2011) modeled the potential geographical distribution of P. bahiensis Simó and Brescovit 2001, a threatened species endemic to Brazil.…”

“…The climatic variables were obtained from the database WorldClim 30 sec, with a resolution of 1 km (Hijmans et al, 2005a), that comprises nineteen different bioclimatic variables related to temperature and precipitation. They are widely used in researches related with the ecophysiological tolerances of a species in the habitat (Graham & Hijmans, 2006;Dias et al, 2011). To determine whether climatic variables have a greater impact on the model we use a Jackniffe analysis to measure the weight of each variable.…”

“…12 Os resultados atribuem à temperatura um papel determinante para a ocorrência dos acidentes, pois aranhas e outros invertebrados dependem de condições ideais de umidade e temperatura para o forrageio. 10,13 Em períodos sob temperaturas mais elevadas, apresentam maior atividade, saindo de seus abrigos para caçar. 10,13 Este fato pode explicar a maior incidência de acidentes nestes períodos, já que aumentam as chances de contato com seres humanos.…”

“…6,12 Phoneutria inclui oito espécies de aranhas errantes que se distribuem da América Central até o Norte da Argentina. 13 Habitualmente, não vivem em teias e durante o dia permanecem escondidas em cortes de árvores, troncos, bananeiras, palmeiras ou bromélias, também são caçadoras noturnas e podem ser encontradas no ambiente peridomiciliar. 6,12 Os acidentes com humanos podem evoluir para a morte, pois os extratos das glândulas de veneno da aranha armadeira sul-americana Phoneutria nigriventer (Keyserling, 1891), contém polipeptídeos de baixo peso molecular com atividade neurotóxica.…”
