A. avicularia morphotype? - MM
I have little to no experience with differentiating avics so I was wondering what morphotype he is. I'm guessing 1, but I don't have a good idea whatsoever. A. avicularia MM.
Reluctant to ID Avics based on one picture with only a few species, because w/those species nothing else looks like them. If you don't know the species, don't breed it for god sakes. W/that that said, sure reminds me of A. avic, @cold blood has bred these.
Certainly not #6 aka, metallica. I've owned MMs.
 
@viper69 - I didn't get that far in my thought process. However, due to not knowing for sure what it is, I will not pair him. Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

@cold blood - thank you as well. Appreciated, as well.

Also, some slight apologies, I posted this right before going to bed in the wee hours of the morning. So, having looked deeper I see how much of a difficulty it can be. I'm going to see if the revision paper has any useful information that I can understand/come to understand that might help.
 
@cold blood Na... same species, same emboli.
If emboli were different, that'd probably be significant grounds to elevate to species status.
Concluded without DNA analysis, the only differences between the morphotypes is the urticating setae structure. Fukushima & Bertani thought this minor difference wasn't enough to consider them separate species, so instead they call them "morphotypes".
