    "do you what..."
    know/have/read? what do you mean.
    All whips from Australia are just distributed in the northern parts, or in Islands... nowhere elese ever documented.
    But it would not wonder if you will some endimic species in caves with river systems, which doesn't dry out to often...

    You mean that you have found a picture of one of Michaels' whip spiders that is comparable to your specimen....You have not identified it, trust me :) All I can say about your picture in your thread is that your whip spider looks like a Damon species.

    cheers, Michiel

    Hi,
    no just a juvenile, but the colouration will stay stable.

    Really wish I could find a Acanthophrynus coronatus here in the states. Do you have any more pictures of yours as I really would like to see the full size of one of these.

    Juveniles I think? I'm wondering if the Samar cave specimen does have troglobitic adaptations, ea. lighter pigmentation, longer legs yet of the same breeding population as of that forest specimen.

    No, they are adult-they can reproduce in this size!
    adaptions: hmm maybe, but I do not think so... till now I have no dead specimen to check it...
