Poecilotheria chajoii Mirza, Sanap & Bhosale, 2014
– Satpura Hills, Central India

Mirza, Z.A., Sanap, R.V & H. Bhosale, 2014.
Description of a new species of arboreal tarantula of the genus Poecilotheria Simon, 1885 (Araneae: Theraphosidae) from Satpura Hills, Central India.
Journal of the British Tarantula Society, 29(2): June 2014, 60-65 [p. 61, figs. 1-6].

Editor's Note: The validity of this species, described from a single ultimate male and using problematic morphological data, has been questioned. This new species may be synonymous with Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli. The senior author, Zeeshan Mirza, has assured me that the Satpura Hills are quite separated from the range of P. tigrinawesseli and he has molecular data that will support the new species that will be published later. After first deciding not to catalog P. chajoii (sp. nov.) here, I have changed my mind and added it with this qualifying note.
