This is one of those species that is often misidentified... at least in Canada. I bought this species, which was imported into Canada from Europe, as Euathlus parvulus. After posting my female on Instagram, I was told by Nico (a Chilean national and expert on the Euathlus genus) that it was definitely not parvulus.
So, after going back and forth in PMs on Instagram, we finally determined that what I had was Euathlus manicata.
This is a hugely under appreciated genus. They are absolutely stunning, they are visible all the time - even when smaller, they have incredible appetites, and they are a little bit skittish and very fast.
I have two adult females, both of whom matured too late to breed to my mature male, and I have no hopes of seeing this species in Canada any time soon. It is a damn shame... this species will likely disappear.
