Avicularia
Bought at a show. Labeled as pink toe. Am I right in guessing Avicularia avicularia?
All of them that look comparable to that are now just Avicularia avicularia.
You can jazz it up a bit by proclaiming you know what morphotype it is, but even then its still a lot of speculation
 
To me it looks like it might be morphotype #6, but I'm not positive. Definitely Avicularia avicularia though
 
@5150 They did a revision of the Avics a little while back, so now there's 7 distinct forms of "Avicularia avicularia", but they're all considered different morphotypes. What used to be Avicularia metallica is now "Avicularia avicularia morphotype #6". So if I were to use the outdated name to clear things up a bit, I'd say you have an A. metallica.
 
@PidderPeets I see (sort of). I have but two A. avics, Elvira & Esmeralda. Don't know if these two fall into a subcategory. BTW, where did PidderPeets come from?
 
@5150 Those two will also belong to a certain morphotype, it's just a matter of figuring out which one. If you got them from pet stores or you know that they were wild-caught, they're likely either morphotype #1 or #6 as those are by far the most common. If they have longer and fuzzier white tipped setae like this one does, they're probably #6. If the setae is shorter and more reddish instead, it's likely morphotype #1. And you mean my username? It's basically just a really dumbed down and baby-speak way of saying "spider feet". Nothing too interesting. Lol
