Thrixopelma cyaneolum

Female Thrixopelma cyaneolum. No filters, just flash :)
How long have you had her, and from whom did you obtain her? We don't see these too often in USA.
 
I've had her about a year and a half, she came from a guy that randomly got her, who doesn't sell many tarantulas. I happily jumped at the opportunity to buy.
I actually just got another maybe a month and a half ago, they were listed as H.sp blue femur, and I knew exactly what I was looking at so I jumped at the opportunity to buy another. Lol Simply Spiders actually had two. They had another listed as H.sp. Blue Peru that was a female. The one I just bought is unsexed and I'm fine with whatever happens. A friend of mine a couple of hours away has three of them, two are unsexed still.

I’ve heard from a very reputable hobbyist/seller, who owns a colony of T cyan, that both of those common names do NOT necessarily mean the specimen is T cyan at all. He regularly gets specimens from Europe legally,

The source for these is Europe generally. Given they know a lot about these, as they breed them, I trust his knowledge as he is connected to some very knowledgeable breeders.

I’ve owned one of the common names you mentioned, and as it matured it wasn’t T cyan at all.

Common names cause chaos for the hobby esp breeding, hybrids are horrible.

Do you have a dorsal shot displaying the abdomen fully?

The abdomen of the second one I got?

This girl is definitely 100% T.cyan, after the many pics I've posted and molts, I got the confirmation.
The second one I'll take a pic of and post and tag you. I haven't seen a molt yet on that one.
 
And I agree. The common names cause chaos.
I have (I think!) A thrixopelma lagunas as well, and one person mentioned that she's not a lagunas but an H.sp blue small or something. It's such a mess. She was supposed to be something else when I got her. After a couple of molts she was blue and not what I ordered lol
I kept her though, she is beautiful, even if I can't get a definite on what she actually is.

Yeah it’s a mess. I was at a show and a known T seller had “T cyan” slings! Then I confronted him asking source etc, he backed down and said they were really H sp X!
