    Probably that's because 200 years ago only very little was know about tarantulas and Avicularia was the first genus that was ever "recorded" by science (by Carl von Linne himself).

    The simple answer would be: No, if you have indeed 2 different species they can't produce fertile offspring.

    Of course the answer is not that easy, as there are different views of how to define...

    Yes, DNA tests are possible and during the last years are getting more common (it seems like some upcoming revisions will include DNA analysis).

    Grammostola porteri can have a pink carapace, but only the rcf is the real Grammostola rosea. They seem to differ in solid characters like stridulating organs as well (see Maleks post).

    Not to...

    Afaik they are accepted being different species so far: The rcf is the real Grammostola rosea and the "normal" form is Grammostola porteri
