OK.. First.. I hate common names..... Hate them!
I dont have a picture... I dont have a description of the spider.. So basically.. Im not sure of anything on the spider..

Heres the situation.. Someone is selling a Asian Birdeating Tarantula for $40 on Craigslist...

1) Is that a Haplopelma sp. common name?
2) Is that a good price if it is a Haplo. sp.?

Thats basically all I am wanting to know.. I know you cant say if the spider is really a Haplo or anything else.. Without a picture.. I was just curious about the name...

Thanks..

A few I came up with for common names from searches.

Cyriopagopus paganus

Haplopelma longipes

Ornithoctonus aureotibialis

Haplopelma minax


Other than that, I can't help. But I tried. Hope you get a good ID.

Doesn't matter what it is. You knew you were going to look at it & we know you'll probably come home with it :p

Actually.. Its about a 2 hour drive to pick it up.. So just to go and look at it seems a tad pointless... I emailed the guy for a picture & other information.. We shall see what happens.. :D

If its a female Chilobrachys sp... I am hoping for a C. huahini.. {D

Either way.. If he send me a picture I will show y'all for further inspection.. :} I will also let you know if I decide to get it or not.. :D

Planning on ordering a C. fimbriatus myself this week.

Tommy, Oops, I guess I'm a bit late but hopefully you can talk them down to 10 or less after a two hour drive {D. I don't know firsthand how tough it is to id these Haplopelma but see queries with fairly good accompanying photos on identification of Haplos, along with other close-resembling genera, go unanswered on this board all the time. Good luck. Terry

Yeah.. I understand you cant get a 100% ID or there is a chance that it goes unidentified.. But thats no worries.. If I cant figure out what it is then it will be my pet whatever.. LoL.. As far as the drive.. I am trying to find an excuse to get up towards Dallas anyways.. I want to go to "The Container Store"! So it really wouldnt be a wasted trip... :D
i was thinking C huahini.
Lets hope thats what it is... :D Seeing that my male matured yesterday... :D
The common name for C. huahini is Asian Fawn. Would be nice though.
Do you really want some baby huahini? They are great! :D My male went from1" maybe 2" at the most.. I cant right remember.. But it went 1-2" to mature in a matter of 3 months.. I got it on 5-7-10... They grow super fast..
