Freshly moulted and looking vastly different to what she looked like shortly after her last moult. She is looking far more like the Aphonopelma eutylenum that I found in my search online. Photo of her last September in the comment section.
@AphonopelmaTX ehhhh that only goes so far, if youve seen all the variations it's alot easier. the only real exceptions ive seen are the dwarves, AND johnnycashi/eutylenum.
iodius and eutylenum can easily be told apart by looking at the legs- eutylenum have coppery fiery hairs on them that just dont photo well, iodius never have that. its more subdued, more pastel-like, also iodius is never ever dirty-blonde, its more similar to chalcodes. both forms can have a black mask which can cause confusion.
when it comes to dwarves, though, you gotta look at minute details, though locality is actually very helpful. (cept for a certain area where icenoglei, prenticei, mojave and joshua are all syntopic.)
I can easily tell apart anax, armada and hentzi, they all look dramatically different to me.
@Ungoliant She is still the little cranky pants she's always been.
I have never seen anything quite like this in my collection. Sure lots of them change colour, but none that drastically at that size. To say I was surprised is an understatement.
