    this spider resides where the balfouri lives on socotra. I cant find anything on it like a picture. Does anybody know what it looks like??? Is it plain or colorfull like the balfouri

    It's not a Theraphosidae, it's a trapdoor spider, so my guess would be that it is not really colorful.

    It would be nice to have more info on this species though!

    It's a barychelid and according to the original description: "carapace deep ruddy-brown, scantily clothed with silky-yellow hairs; legs pale orange yellow; abdomen pale olive grey."
