B vagans?????
Sold to me as a female B vagans, looked nothing like the photo I was given prior to purchase, I questioned whether it was the same spider but was assured it was a B vagans. I’m a novice so I accepted this. Discovered today it’s a male. Now wondering if it is indeed a vagans. Please help :)
Looking at those back legs (and all of them), it looks kind of fuzzy like a B. albopilosum. Don't take my word for it, but it looks kind of like a hybrid.
 
Yeah, there's no way I'd buy it if someone told me that was a B. vagans. Seconding it looking more like B. albo.

Even in heavy premolt a vagans wouldn't look like that.

Especially since it's turned out male, i'd be contacting the seller again.
 
This is not a pure B. vagans, and I'd definitely mark it as a hybird if it was sold that way... unfortunately it sounds like the seller here had no idea what they were talking about.
