    Hello !

    I've read that it could possibly be a new chilobrachys sp discovered in Borneean. They called it Selenocosmia sp. Biru.
    What do you guys think about it ?

    Edit : due to copyright policy, pictures shall be removed. But if it's all true, maybe will we have some other pictures soon or later

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    That's from Borneo expedition from Facebook, that's a group of biologist (I guess). Some serious breeders shared it, so I am hoping that is true :)

    Pics not loading for me, but I'm assuming it's that really cool metallic blue one.

    This species was actually shared about a month ago. Different pics and finder.

    Seems these are the pics everyone's seen for some reason.

    Afaik it is not confirmed as a Chilobrachys sp. yet. They just assumed it based on its stridulatory behaviour.

    Ugly carapace color. :vomit:

    Maybe it's a male. Hope there's a female that looks better.

    Could you maybe include a link to the facebook page where the pictures were posted? I am very curious, but was not able to find any thing.
