“…They diagnosed the genus by the male palpal bulb and spermathecal shape, and by the way the metatarsus closes over the tibial apophyses. Bertani (2001) revised and presented a cladogram for the relationships of the Vitalius species, and also commented on the zoogeography of the species. Many specimens of theraphosids housed in scientific collections are rare, perhaps because of the difficulty in collecting cryptic animals that live mainly in burrows or under rocks or logs, and only under special conditions it is possible to collect more than a few individuals (Bertani 2001).…”

“…Bertani (2001) revised and presented a cladogram for the relationships of the Vitalius species, and also commented on the zoogeography of the species. Many specimens of theraphosids housed in scientific collections are rare, perhaps because of the difficulty in collecting cryptic animals that live mainly in burrows or under rocks or logs, and only under special conditions it is possible to collect more than a few individuals (Bertani 2001). Arguably, reports on geographic distribution have only very fragmented information and, in the majority of works, only the type localities are provided.…”

“…Little is known about the natural biology of many species of Theraphosidae and its taxonomy has been considered to be in a chaotic state (Raven 1990). Despite the progress in the taxonomy of Theraphosidae in the last 20 years, much is yet to be done (Bertani et al 2012).…”

“…Very little is known about the biology of the Theraphosidae and due to the homogeneity of theraphosinae morphology and the scarcity of taxonomic characters, its taxonomy is in a chaotic state (Raven, 1990, Pérez-Miles et al, 1996Bertani, 2000). Despite the progress in the taxonomy of Theraphosidae in the last twenty years, much is yet to be done (Bertani et al, 2012;Miglio et al, 2013).…”
