    I know this thread is over a month old but I am strongly considering A chalcodes as my next T and I'm partial to the bright, light blonde colors. Wanted to see if anyone had any additional input as to locality of this beauty. I've done a bit of searching and a lot of the 'New River' sp seem to have a reddish/rusty tinge to them. The common name also seems to aptly be "New River Rust Rump," hence the reddish abdomen. I'm looking to avoid that (though they are very pretty) and find one that's as light and neutral-toned as possible.

    From what I've just read before coming to this thread then I'd say about 4-5" legspan and 4-5.5" in the New River Rust Rump locality, and with some rare 6"+ specimens.
