Just picked this up the other day at a local shop... No other info provided. Looks almost like an E. African Yellow legged, but the red feelers are kind of different.

Probably a subspinipes subspecies. Can you do a count of the articles on the antennae and a count of the spines on the prefemur? Maybe some closer pics? The locality is right for a subspinipes as well. They're pretty common in the asian region from what I understand.

Scott, it's tough to count but I *think* 18 segments.

I do like it quite a bit... I'll have to find out where they got it. There's some minor damage on some of the plates and the tip of one of the rearmost legs, but the thing seems perky enough. I assume it'll molt out eventually.

You know, 'perky' might not be the right word.
