Turret Spider reclassification


The turret spider has evidently been moved from:

Antrodiaetus riversi

Atypoides riversi

Don’t know whether there is a better authority, but these agree on the reclassification.

World Spider Catalog: NMBE - World Spider Catalog

Wikipedia and iNaturalist also agree that it’s Atypoides, but I wasn’t allowed to include those links because noob

Thanks, there may be some delay, but the EOL classification will automatically catch up with the World Spider Catalog.

Great! Thanks.

By automatically, do you mean software or some overworked individual has to do it by hand. It’s been almost 2 years since the WSC was updated.

We get the WSC data from Catalogue of Life, so we depend on them updating WSC first. It’s currently a semi-automated process, so it usually takes us a while to catch up.

What, if any, kind of error-correction help can users provide that isn’t duplicative of the slow semi-automated process?
