    I heard that there is P. plantaris, which should be extremely fuzzy, in a way that you can't even see his body ...
    Has any of you seen/heard of it ?

    I have a saved webpage that lists all the Psalm's, but I've never seen plantaris, and that is listed so I've heard of it, but I don't know much about it.

    I have cambridgei, pulcher and irminia. I need a reduncas...and then well...it's nearly impossible to get the others, I think.



    I haven't even tried to get photos of the pulcher sling. It's so small. I have a GBB sling which is slightly larger, and I haven't been able to get decent photos of that yet. I need a better lighting setup, and then I could probably manage it, at least with the GBB. The pulcher hides as soon as the vial is distrubed.

    Is there only 5 species in the genus Psalmopoeus then ? :?
    Have affinis, ecclesiaticus, emeraldus, intermedius, plantaris, rufus all been found to be synonyms of cambridgei, irminia, maya, pulcher & reduncus now then? :?

    These are considered to be in genus Psalmopoeus:

    But not all are in the hobby as for what I know. I've seen only irminia, reduncus, cambridgei, pulcher and maya (this one only on pic).

    No, sorry I should have been more specific. I meant the 5 that I wanted and were most available. I try not to fret over the ones I can't have. :rolleyes:
