0.1 C. dyscolus “blue” (South Vietnam)
Molt 4” dls. 1” @ January 2018. aka Chilobrachys dyscolus (Vietnam), Chilobrachys sp. “Vietnam blue”, Chilobrachys sp. “blue” (Vietnam)
What kind of microscope are you using? Is it strong enough to sex a 1.5-2” molt? Great shot
 
Are you looking to breed her in the future? i *think* i have a immature male. I don't really get molts from it, but it showed a light dot ventrally just above the furrow.
 
@antinous thanks. this is the most similar to the one i am using. i bought it January 2018 on Amazon for under $10. i plan to invest in a better quality microscope in the future, but this for sure was very helpful. this microscope is very capable on 1.5” molts. the only struggle is opening the molt enough for the lens to properly focus on the spot

@Theneil i do plan to breed this girl! i have another female with very similar size. i have a male that matured yesterday, so i’m currently planning to breed them. will take yours once it matures though
 
Sweet! and just for certainty. discolus blue is synonymous with sp. vietnam blue right?

PS. i think he is probably about 3" right now.
 
@Theneil yes. @advan posted this regarding the matter. whether this species is entirely new or a variant (as N. incei) is not yet determined. i’m very conscious in what i label my tarantulas to avoid confusion. do not breed with other localities of dyscolus! :)
