today was shooting day, and I will start with different color forms of Phrynus longipes from the Dominican Republic...
typical coloration from the Samana peninsula
in the "middle" of DomRep
and here a reddish one from the southern coast (two different spots)
and some Charon spp. from the Philippines
the real Charon grayi from Luzon island
Charon sp.nov. from Negros island
and another new one from Mindanao (but here a juvenile specimen)
Stunning as always! I didn't realize Charon grayi could have such long pedipalps, though it's hard to tell how much of that length is just perceived because of the perspective of the photo
they have indeed elongated pedipalpal femur and tibia, not only in males, even more present. The reason is simple as it is, I always sold just the new Charon species from Negros and Cebu, which do not have that pronounced pedipalps; and not the real ones from Luzon island, but I will do that too...soon
here we go again with some Paraphrynus pictures...
P. robustus adult pair (communal keeping)
wonderful "hairy" P. aztecus female
Paraphrynus sp.nov. (?)
P. raptator juvenile form Belize
Some new ones, enjoy!!
first, the most recently described species: Stygophrynus orientalis
and some Phrynus spp.
Phrynus damonidaensis male
Phrynus goesii female
Phrynus whitei female
Phrynus barbadensis Aruba
Phrynus barbadensis Barbados
Phrynus pinarensis juvenile
Phrynus parvulus juvenile
Phrynus exsul female
Hello Banshee05, did you take all these pictures? Do you keep these species?
These are all my pictures and I am breeding all of those specimen and much more!
I wish I had access to all those species. The U.S. doesn't have much to offer.
I would like to continue here with some most recent whip spider pictures from my collection…
more will follow...
part two for today…
Heterophrynus cf. batesii Peru I
Paraphrynus cf. laevifrons
Heterophrynus sp. Colombia
Heterophrynus cf. batesii Peru II
Catageus sp. Malaysia
now the last ones for today…
@Banshee05 These pictures and animals are, as always, magnificent. Thanks for posting. Phrynichus jayakari is a really beautiful species, as is Musicodamon atlanteus, and I'm also a big fan of the undescribed Catageus species and Euphyrnichus amanica (a perennial favorite lol).
hehe, always here just not so much time to post and reply; but I always keep on breeding and working with that creatures. Right now more than 40 species in breeding
I just need to think on another picture host... a bit chewy
the small jayakari are reddish and wonderful, as bigger they get, as darker and "less colorless" they get; wonderful in any stage.
Also very interesting is P. dhofarensis… hope to breed them as well again.
I think they are all beautiful in their own way. Your excellent quality of pictures helps a lot too. It was a pleasure to be introduced to new species(to me) and studying the colors, patterns, textures and anatomy of those wonderful creatures. Thanks for sharing!
What a spectacular selection of Amblypygi, and great shots I'm receiving a breeding pair of D. medius in the next few days, I can't wait to care for and observe these amazing arthros
Do you have a particular favorite or do find them to be more-or-less the same species-to-species?
