An increasing number of studies of reproductive behavior of mygalomorphs have revealed intricate mechanisms of communication employed by this group (Coyle 1986, Coyle & O'Shields 1990, Jackson & Pollard 1990, Costa & Perez-Miles 1998), and particularly on Theraphosidae
(Baerg 1958, Minch 1979, Costa & Perez-Miles 1992, PerezMiles & Costa 1992, Prentice 1992, 1997, Shillington & Verrel 1997, Punzo & Henderson 1999, Yanez et al.
