Grenada (1976)

Date of issue: February 4th, 1976
Number of arachnid related stamps in issue: 1/8

On the stamp, the genus of the spider is Eurypelma, but this genus was placed in synonymy with the Avicularia genus. The problem is that the spider on the stamp does not look like an Avicularia sp., it looks more like a bulky terrestrial species. As far as I know, there are no described Theraphosidae sp. from Grenada, so that is not too helpful either.

Michel #: 151
Yvert #: 134
order: Araneae
family: Theraphosidae
Theraphosidae sp.
