    I'm not.. here we go!

    eurypeima, this has to be Eurypelma. did you read it wrong? no, the nametag on the frame is wrong:
    however eurypelma is an old name, a synonim to Avicularia (Raven, 1985)
    the spider has since been described as:
    Citharacanthus spinicrus (Latreille, 1819)....................Cuba, Hispaniola
    if this however is the spider in the frame...

    hope this helps
