Abstract

We report new distribution records of two tarantula species from the genus Brachypelma (Simon 1891) within the Peninsula of Yucatan: B. vagans (Ausserer 1875) and B. epicureanum (Chamberlin 1925). B. vagans distribution is confirmed for the Mexican state of Yucatan. We also provide zoogeographical information from specimens deposited in the Colección Entomológica Regional at the Campus de Ciencias Biológicas y Agropecuarias of the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán.
