      I'm between phormictopus or pamphobeteus but having trouble. Please help thanks in advance
    • Cas S
      well Pamphobeteus sp. Platyomma is commonly called the purple bloom, but that does kinda look like a male P. cancerides. Probably a male P. sp Platyomma thought just because its called a purple burst, but it is a pet store, so be carefull.

      If the lady was correct she said this Is female about 10years. So if she is right we can scratch male because of age

      @Clay1111 oh yea, definetly phormictopus

      "If the lady was correct she said this Is female about 10years. So if she is right we can scratch male because of age"

      OMG YOU LUCKED OUT! If the female is like that it may be a P. sp. purple which is rare. Plus confirmed females are super expensive

      I hear pamphobeteus mature females don't hold their purple color..... maybe narrowing down pretty good
    • Cas S
      @Clay1111 oh yeah, its definitely a Phormictopus

      Its Phormictopus cancerides I think.

      To be sure you would need to check the spermathecae.

      Definitely Phormic though
