    Huh, didn't realize female E. amanica had the humongous pedipalps. I thought it was just males.

    Those extremely thin limbs and how they manage to get them out if their exoskeleton always gets me.

    Quite lovely. I didn't realize any Phrynichus got such huge pedipalps.

    One question. Is the enlarged frontal process referring to the chelicerae? That's what it looks like in the picture, but they don't look all that enlarged to me. It's quite possible I just can't tell, but figured I would ask in case it's something else.

    All Phrynichus got this huge pedipalps, species like ceylonicus not so much in ratio to their more massiv body size, but most of the others have really huge ones. That's their style.

    FP: yes, in front of the median eyes, between the chelicera. ONLY johnstonii have this feature; so you can't find it with the thousonds of medius you all got in the states.

  13. Turned out to be 8 whiplings, but down to 5. 3 were presumably cannibalized either by mom or siblings. I have removed mom and put the whiplings in a larger container with more climbing surface. Feeding copius amounts of spring tails, D. hydei, and fresh born Porcelionides pruinosus. They seem fat and content for now!!

    Did you manage to successfully breed them?
