    today was shooting day, and I will start with different color forms of Phrynus longipes from the Dominican Republic...

    typical coloration from the Samana peninsula

    and here a reddish one from the southern coast (two different spots)

    Stunning as always! I didn't realize Charon grayi could have such long pedipalps, though it's hard to tell how much of that length is just perceived because of the perspective of the photo

    they have indeed elongated pedipalpal femur and tibia, not only in males, even more present. The reason is simple as it is, I always sold just the new Charon species from Negros and Cebu, which do not have that pronounced pedipalps; and not the real ones from Luzon island, but I will do that too...soon ;)

    @Banshee05 These pictures and animals are, as always, magnificent. Thanks for posting. Phrynichus jayakari is a really beautiful species, as is Musicodamon atlanteus, and I'm also a big fan of the undescribed Catageus species and Euphyrnichus amanica (a perennial favorite lol).

    the small jayakari are reddish and wonderful, as bigger they get, as darker and "less colorless" they get; wonderful in any stage.
    Also very interesting is P. dhofarensis… hope to breed them as well again.

    I think they are all beautiful in their own way. Your excellent quality of pictures helps a lot too. It was a pleasure to be introduced to new species(to me) and studying the colors, patterns, textures and anatomy of those wonderful creatures. Thanks for sharing!

    What a spectacular selection of Amblypygi, and great shots :) I'm receiving a breeding pair of D. medius in the next few days, I can't wait to care for and observe these amazing arthros :)
    Do you have a particular favorite or do find them to be more-or-less the same species-to-species?
