I've had her for 5 years now

When I received her years ago all I remember was a common name with 'Chilean' in it. I believe Euathlus sp. Montane but that's a guess from pictures
@JAFUENTES It does look like one but Paraphysa is no longer a valid genus. The species 'scrofa' is now in the Phrixotrichus genus. It's obvious from the revision the hobby mislabeled them as scrofa. In order for it to be Phrixotrchus it needs to have two separate lateral mirror patches. That's the main difference between the two closely related genera. Therefore, we know this isn't Phrixotrichus scrofa and is in fact a Euathlus species. I'm being told by Chilian hobbyists (that know their native Ts well) that the hobby Paraphysa/Phrixotrchus scrofa is actually a form of Euathlus parvulus.
