Tarantula Phylogenomics

We are pleased to see that Saoirse Foley’s thesis chapter on the phylogeny of tarantulas is now published in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. Our phylogeny recovers a monophyletic group of New World theraphosid subfamilies, including Aviculariinae, Schismatothelinae and Theraphosinae, as well as good support for what previously were questionable subfamilies, such as Poecilotheriinae and Psalmopoeinae.

Thanks to Martin Hüsser for the following interesting commentary:
