    Ok as title states, as I see nowhere on the site for true spider pics I thought I'd make a thread.

    So yea add up pictures of trues you're keeping/kept with the scientific/species name by said photo so it could possibly be used also for basic IDing purposes too. (get the specie name ATLEAST as its difficult with certain types to identify without use of a microscope etc)

    Sadly I'm at work so can't upload any as of yet, if I get time tonight, I'll take/ upload some pics of my own if I don't have time I'll do it over the weekend as I'm busy till then!

    Also it would be a good thread for lurkers who haven't signed up to the site who can see the diversity in these amazing little creatures.

    (if there is anywhere for threads like these someone let me know and I'll get a mod to move it! Thanks)

    ---------- Post added 05-30-2012 at 08:46 PM ----------

    Ok, so i had the time to take some pics just now (isn@t all of them just got pics of the ones that were willing lol).

    Amaurobius Ferox? im unsure on this one but i believe its in the Amaurobius sp.

    [​IMG]

    Segestria sp. (I think maybe florentina as the fangs have a slight green sheen)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lycosidae?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Drasodes lapidosus

    [​IMG]

    Tegenaria sp.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i have 4 of those, one grown on sling and 3 Juvies.

    D. crocata mature male

    [​IMG]

    I have another 3 mature females one juvie and a sling in a communal together of these guys one of the females layed a sack last night:

    [​IMG]

    and i believe one of the other females is preparing a eggsack too, i'd like to have a go at successfully raising this species. as i have done so with my tegenaria, Steatoda nobilis and i currently have a Amaurobius similis sack that started emerging into slings today. I've tried looking for information on eggsack care/requirements online but didn't come up with anything lol if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated too. (Catfishrod i think you mentioned you kept these when i accidentally mislabelled a spider you needed an ID for? if so did you breed them? anything will help. thanks).

    What are the chances i happened to see this? Haha. Anyways if you are reffering to the D. crocata, i recently let all of them go. Two of them did have eggs though. Sorry i cant really help much. I imagine they should hatch pretty easily for you. Awesome thread, now it will take me some time to dig up alot of pics!

    Hey Curious_Jay, the specimens you have in doubt: Amaurobius ferox, Segestria florentina and the Lycosidae is a Trochosa sp.

    Gonna love this thread.

    @rod I believe they're pretty harder as is but I think there also slow growing (if anyone has a roug idea of slings would be helpful as I have 3 isopod setups I can drop a couple of gravid females in when they hatch out by the time they hit 2nd instar should be plenty of young isopods about)

    @Hawk thanks for clearing that up for me buddie I'll alter the names when I get a chance. I was hoping the thread would bring out some nice pictures, has a fair amount of views but only a few pics lol.

    Come on people post your pictures up ;)

    Interesting collection you got there.
    One thing though, that is not "coelestris segestriformis" (the real name of the species you're referring to is Pireneitega segestriformis btw). It's actually Lycosoides coarctata (i'm guessing it comes from the Mediterranean area). :)

    Well after a little wait one of the mature female Trochosa sp has appeared with an eggsack! I thought the other one had eaten her as she completely disappeared for a week or so. I'll get some pics up as soon as I can get some decent shots as I don't want to stress her incase she eats the sack.
