Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (Strand/1907), also known as “Greenbottle blue”, is a wonderful bird spider due to its coloration and webbehavior from Venezuela. This in combination with the fact that she’s rather docile, makes her one of the most perfect species to enter the hobby with. In 1907 she’s officially been published by Strand as Eurypelma cyaneopubescens. Later, in 1939, Petrunkevitch moved her to the Delopelma-genus (which is today the Aphonopelma-genus). Nevertheless spiders of the Aphonopelma-genus are anatomically different due to its burrowing characteristics, which is the main reason why Schmidt gave Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens a genus for herself in 1995.
