Hi,

LOL, Gigus, sure i have and sure you have seen some.

Pictures of male P. nigriventer and male P. reidyi have been posted from my side in several threads here.

I have no pics of my former male P. boliviensis though, but they´re quite easy to to tell apart from females as they have much more black in the face and show a slightly different build and abdominal markings.

I find the sexual dimorphism within the P. boliviensis more pronounced than with P. nigriventer and P. reidyi.

Greetings,

Stefan

that Cupiennius is really impressive
Hi again,

definitely, unfortunately a rather small species.

Interestingly, there are some coloration differences within this species with specimen from different locations in central america.
Specimen from Costa Rica differ to some degree to that from Panama...

Greetings,

Stefan
