Brachypelma baumgarteni (also called Mexican orange beauty) is a tarantula endemic to Pacific coast of Michoacan, Mexico.
It is similar to B. klaasi, but it has more reddish patellae. B. baumgarteni was thought to be a captive hybrid of B. smithi crossed with B. boehmei, because for a long time no specimen had been reported successfully bred in captivity. According to genetic analyses, its closest relative is B. boehmei.
