Summary

Full Title

Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi - Amblypygi Collection

Description

The amblypygids have long pedipalps raptoriais with sharp thorns, making them somewhat scary for the general public to associate the poisonous and dangerous species. However, they are harmless. They occupy tropical and subtropical forests, and some species are adapted to live in deserts and caves. The biology and natural history of amblypygids are poorly known. The last review conducted in 2003 by Baptista & Giupponi (2003) reports the existence of eight species described from Brazil.
