0.1 P. scrofa, 0.75"

Finally got a proper sexing with this last molt. Hands down the best eater in my collection... including the juvie Nhandu's. Not afraid of anything, this girl.
The hobby Phrixothrichus scrofa (once called Paraphysa) are mislabeled... According to the lastest revision, the main difference that is obvious in a picture between the two genera is the abdominal mirror patch. One, centered mirror patch = Euathlus. Two separate mirror patches = Phrixothrichus. The hobby scrofa is most likely a Euathlus species like it's cousin Paraphysa parvula (now Euathlus parvulus).
 
I love the fact that exists a Theraphosidae named 'scrofa'. Here in Italy both the name for 0.1 pigs and a very old word for "easy" Ladies :pompous:
 
@CEC I'm actually pretty happy that it's an Euathlus. I love that genus. So, what should it be labeled? Hobby Phrixothrichus scrofa? Euathlus sp. "Scrofa"? Or just Euathlus sp.?
