    This sp. becoming common would have the largest impact in the hobby...probably the best beginner sp out there, yet, easily the most gorgeous beginner as well.

    I'll have to do some more research on this species, that is very interesting!

    I had to google this one. Looks like a dully colored version of a GBB. Do you own one or know anything about their behavior?

    duller version? you saw a bad pic...theyre better looking than a gbb imo
    ...the big gold mirror patch just looks great against the blues.

    @KezyGLA has a great pic of his that im sure hed be happy to share....my pics dont do it justice.

    I just meant the orange isnt as vibrant. They werent the best pics, but the GBB does still seem brighter. Which is funny because theres also the oligoxystre diamantinensis which looks like a super sparkly version of the GBB.

    Have you heard of the temperaments of T. lagunas and other similar species/localities? Are there any similar to cyaneolum?

    I had an A. moderatum and two A. iodius when I was a teenager. I really want both of those species again. A. iodius I will have soon enough and I am considering breeding a pair of them, but I have no idea when I'll get my hands on another A. moderatum.

    Its s shame there is basically only WC female T. cyaneo in the hobby. Lets hope we can change that situatuon.

    I wish there was more Indian sp. available in the hobby. Apart from Poecs of course

    @mack1855 it's peterklaasi, not peterklassi. The species was named after Peter Klaas, not Peter Klas. ;)

    As for the species I would like to see more, G.iheringi, the Aphonopelma genus except aberrans, and Homoeomma sp. Red.

    M.mesomelas is a stunning T, here in the UK their really expensive, for a sling we're talking £50 that's steep, I would like to see more Pamphobeteous sp. in the hobby too.

    Lots of English speaking keepers make that mistake. You simply don't use the 'long aa' very much. ;)

    The others mentioned mostly everything, that comes to my mind first:

    Megaphobema mesomelas
    Thrixopelma cyaneolum
    Grammostola iheringi
    Pamphobeteus nigricolor
    Pamphobeteus antinous
    Theraphosa stirmi
    and blondi
    Eupalaestrus campestratus
    Euathlus parvulus
    Ephebopus cyanognathus
    Avicularia geroldi


    These are really rare here in Hungary.

    It doesn't matter if everyone has named them, it's good to hear what each person would like to see more of. Also, it is very interesting to hear about what species other countries have difficulty finding by comparison ;)

    Here is my girl, I suck at pictures. Seeing one in person is...wow. As @cold blood said, if this species became common in the hobby, it would literally change everything. The most gentle spider I have ever come across.

    Talked myself into getting another G. iheringi in another topic (had one during my first T stint) but an internet search turns up zilch.

    They weren't exactly common back then (had to travel to darkest Wolverhampton and the BTS show to find one) but do they still pop up from time to time - particularly, for my purposes, in the UK?

    And here's mine:

    The blue's are striking, but the red is not as prominent as the GBBs, you are right, there. In temperament they resemble a larger, more colorful E. sp. red: calm, curious, very easy to take care of.

    (I hope this one will be the Grandma of many little cyaneolums all over Europe one day ;). Counting on you, @KezyGLA :D)

    Um... I don't know if I need to see a doctor but I am literally, physically salivating at the cyaneolum pics...
