    I was wondering if B.Verdezi and B.Kahlenbergi were the same species with the former being the old name and the latter being the current name. I can't hardly find any information on Brachypelma Kahlenbergi, it is the strangest thing.

    @sdsnybny .

    Would you by any chance have some pictures of adult Brachypelma Kahlenbergi? If not, I will Google it.

    Is their setup the same as any other members of Brachypelma?

    @Jmanbeing93 they are different species but their set ups should be the same as they both come from arid semi - desert areas.
    I own one of each my verdezi is an mature male that I've raised from a sling whereas my kahlenbergi is a 1.5" sling that's not quite showing full adult colours yet.

    They're really easy to tell apart as verdezi have a gold/copper carapace, black legs and the same orange setae as hobby B albo.
    B kahlenbergi have generally got a sort of light beige carapace , brown legs and deep red setae hairs. Ime kahlenbergi can look sort of blueish under certain light.
