wow. aren't you helpful. :wall:I know what it is.....
..... it's cute as a button!
kori, any new luck figuring out what it is?
hmmmmm, i'm going to narrow it down and say the likelyhood of Euathlus sp. (or Paraphysa sp., but i am still kind of iffy saying that) doesn't seem too great now since the mirror patch just doesn't fit either of them. even at the size yours is that butterfly shape is pretty obvious on a Euathlus and only slightly less on Paraphysa from the pictures i've taken/been going through. your sling looks like it has some type of mirror patch, but i can't get a good idea of the shape from the pictures, but i suppose that is failure on my part. i do feel more confident ruling out Euathlus than Paraphysa though.
Euathlus looks like it was/is one messed up genus, but if you look at the pics in the gallery (and read the notes, it'll redirect you to some other possibilities) there are a fairly decent amount of slings that don't look like yours.
