    i recognise it but i just can't put a name to it. also for some reason it makes me think of RCF G.Rosea even though i know it is'nt, duh :?

    The shape of the legs (i.e. built like a tank), red hairs on the legs and abdomen and the dark triangle over the eyes against the paler carapace suggest B. Emilia to me...

    (The morph that has the dark triangle on pale rather than a pale triangle on dark is the Panama Emilia).

    Look about right?

    Something very interesting, an obvious close relation to many Chilean spp. ;)

    i've been told this is the latin:

    Euathlus trunculentus

    But ive looked everywhere and phones pet stores, this name is virtually non-existent.
    It does look like some kind of Brachypelma sp but at the same time it looks like a sp from Chile.
    What would you recommend keeping it like? i was thinking like a Grammastola Rosea

    According to a few German and Czech collectors sites, Euathlus trunculentus was identified by Ausserer in 1875 in Chile, so keeping it in similar conditions to G. Rosea should work...

    Hi,
    Well, maybe. This species has the double mirror patch which is also seen in the Grammastola, isn't it?? I dunno, this looks a lot like the real G.cala too, maybe too much gold on the carapace.......I don't know, I hate NW spiders! ;)
