Pamphobeteus Ultramarinus Female
here is a 'new' and exciting species of the genus Pamphobeteus:
semi- or subadult male
exciting is the the finding place of this species, namely Rio Dagua, which is the type locality of Pamphobeteus ornatus, Pocock 1903.
P. platyomma male (Donatello) at 2 and 1/4 inches:
Pamphobeteus fortis adult female
a highland species from Colombia,
adult female and semiadult male
another highland species (1900m), found in a rather wet and cool habitat in Colombia and known as sp. Montana in the Hobby.
spiderling with interesting abdominal pattern
You don't see many pics of this rare species especially 1-day post molt. This is one of my favorite tarantulas because they are large-growing (to 8.5"+), active and display well, eat frequently and on big prey and they are beautiful with the scarlet red abdominal hairs with flat black-jet black legs and carapace with scarlet fringe hairs along the top of the mandibles.
P. platyomma male (Donatello) at 3 and 3/4 inches:
highland species from Colombia (1800m), known as Pamphobeteus sp. Conani.
Pamphobeteus verdolaga Cifuentes, Perafán & Estrada-Gomez, 2016.
altitudes up to 2200m, Colombia.
Hmm, P. verdolaga = P aff. nigricolor, how is that possible? http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?scr...1984-46702016000603008&lng=en&nrm=iso&tlng=en
I thought that P. aff. nigricolor looked exactly like P. aff. nigricolor II which looks completely different than this.
there's no connection or correlation between the hobby aff. nigricolor and verdolaga.
only the same name for two different species.
and in one case this given name is probably completely senseless.
I purchased two of these as P. sp. esmeralda from a private collection a few months ago. Any thoughts on this being the proper identification for them? They just got rid of their juvenile color and pattern with their last molt a week or so ago. They are about 2-2.5".
I would try uploading these to Tarantula Identification.
Thanks, will do.
adult male of Pamphobeteus ornatus:
Pamphobeteus sp. Silvestris (Ecuador), older female
Freshly moulted Pamphobeteus fortis sub-adult male.
