A. hentzi ?

Caught San Antonio, Hill country. I am thinking A. hentzi ... If I am wrong... let me know!

      All the different Aphonopelma can be suuuuuper tricky when collected from the wild. So many lookalikes among that genus. Even experts debate non-dna verified IDs, it seems pretty hairy. So I'm not even trying to guess, nope. I just wanted to comment to say what a beautiful friend you have there! LOVELY!

      In San Antonio, you most likely have yourself an Aphonopelma anax. To confirm, you will need to save the next molt and look at the spermatheca. Two rounded lobes that look like little mountains and it is definitely A. anax. A different shape will mean a different species and you will have to look at the hairs on the inside of the palpal coxae. A. anax is unique in that it is the only American (as in from the USA) tarantula that can be readily identified from the spermatheca.
