Friend of a friend got a T from a friend - ruled out the G pulchra and G actaeon - what might this T be?? Thanks!!
If we consider it is likely one of the more common species, it could be an adult female Lasiodora parahybana.


But if i were you i would double check, one picture is never a good way to identify a spider.

Aha!! It didn’t cross my mind to consider Lasiodora spp.!!! Thanks for the clue!

Yes indeed, I’d figure it to be a common one also from what I know of its circumstances.
 
That's a Tliltocatl species of some sort and definetely not Lasiodora. It lacks the abdominal hairs on the abdomen that goes all the way to pedicel like most Lasiodora species. What you have isn't Lasiodora to me, you have some kind of Tliltocatl species, but they're quite hard to ID since a few species in that genus tend to look alike or similar.

Hmmmm, another clue thank you!! Good call on considering Tliltocatl spp. I might need to go see it for myself to get further pics / footage.

Perhaps shall remain a mystery for a time.

oh really, do you have a link to the paper in the WSC for me? Id love to avoid an aimless search.

It seems to me the picture was just too dark right behind the pedicel to pic up on any setae.
 
Looks like an Acanthoscurria shape to me. Not schroederi or pulchra as I have several of them, and not like LP. What is DLS?
 
Why are you all dismissing the LP so easily? seems pretty similar in my opinion

i have got 2 adult females and i could probably take a similar looking picture with my phone if i tried (bad lighting + file reduction)
main thing is that the setae are out of focus on the legs and parts of the opisthosoma

There are lots of similar spiders but none are as commonly found in circulation as the Lasiodora parahybana.


do give us the backsory, perhaps there are some clues, and yes the size could also help in making an informed guess

I'm just speaking from my experience and it's just like you said. We're all on the same boat of speculation and guessing based on one picture alone.
