    The name should be Eurypelma spinicrus, an old name for Citharacanthus spinicrus. Whether or not that spider is indeed C. spinicrus, I don't know.

    I think someone somewhere is turning those things out in bulk. My dad bought me a shadowboxed, preserved E. spinicrus from some gun show in Texas (I know, right?) It seemed a bit strange to me that it wasn't some local species like A. anax or hentzi. I guess they're being "made" somewhere over in farawayland and imported. Mine is coated in like, creosote or something. It's all black and smells like... well, like creosote.

    The yellow banding on the legs makes me think of an Ephebopus species.

    Not a bad thought... but what reminds me of Ephebopus is the laterally extended scopula on the anterior pairs of legs and the pedipalps.
