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.

      @Moakmeister A bit, yeah. It's a young juvenile at this point, not a sling anymore. Not glacier slow, but not fast.

      @Oliverhenderson She's in the same condiment cup I got her in :D

      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).

      @CEC Wow, thank you very much for that. Good to know, I'll make a note on the label.

      @EulersK

      No problem, thought you would like to know since you own one. Phrixothrichus spp. are uncommon in the hobby, especially the US. I don't think we have any. The species I've seen pictured the most are Phrixotrichus vulpinus.
      Vlad has a Phrixotrichus sp. shown here so you can get an idea of the difference.

      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.?
