    thank you very much! I keep many of them half of dozen generations long… a lot of work, but definitely worth. Favorite… ff hard to say, I guess some Phrynichus species, but there are so many lovely ones. Some get spectacular huge, some so small, some colorful, some not, etc. but it is 99% always they same, they need 2-3 years to reach maturity, you need a lot of patient, handling experience, and time :) nothing for the mass, but for the lovers and the ones who really want to keep and breed them.

    That's freaking awesome that you have P. asperatipes in your collection. Such a beauty!

    I guess not. CATAGEUS sp. Malaysia just come in the alst 2 years, I most recently got a big breeding group and had my first hatchlings...so in the next generation I can share them.
    A. coronatus are just in Europa from me, the rest in the states and Canada are from Martin G. and Gil W.

    I imported 90% of my Amblypygi collection from Matin @ Tarantula Canada, he may get them from Micheal though.

    I had originally ordered a 1/4" Phrynus decoratus (Dominican Republic) from Tarantula Canada, but I was a bit concerned with their size. Both my others were more in the 1/2" to 3/4" range when I got them and I have only raised two.
    When I got to the expo today, Martin offered me this tyke from his private collection/breeding program - a Phrynus decoratus (Cuba) who is much larger. Of course, I couldn't say no.

    P. decoratus isn't a big species, no matter if from Cuba or DomRep. They need quite long to grow, and are quite small when they hatch. Usually I can mate own offsprings after 2,5-3 years raising. The cuban ones do not get bigger as the others, right now you just got a older/faster grew specimen. Do not mix them up when mating!

    Stygophrynus sp. “Malaysia” supposed 1.1 pair.

    I narcotized the specimens in order to sex them and I’m looking for a second opinion from anyone. Especially others who have sexed with this method before.

    These two photos are of my supposed female^

    As much as I dislike selfies and handling Inverts, I just had to get this snap to send to my severely arachnophobic BF XD

    Most likely are you right, BUT, with all charontids and charinids, you do not have hard sclerotized parts as with the other females in females gonopods (hook like);: here it is very easy to sex, I do it usually just with exuvias in all sizes and do not any more narcotize them with CO2, but it also works fine. So the problem is with charontids differniating between two soft parts in females and males and the female gonopods are usually VERY small,no mather which species and size, male spermatophore organds are huge and are all along undereath the genitcal operculum.
    Good luck with them.

    Every time I see a pic of these adorably cute little truckers I think they would comment, "Hey! Evolution. Work with what you got, eh?"
