Hallo Peter,
Beautiful spider and certainly looks like the previous images of that species, but who ID'd it?? I did not think that anyone was capable of identifying any of the Avicularia to species level, namely because nobody has as yet seen ALL types from the group, mapped intergrades, noted inter-specific variants, etc.

Regardless, beautiful animal and quite different to the others in the market...

Thanks,
Steve

This was exactly my point in a thread regarding these spiders on another board. How have they been identified to species level? What have they been compared against, and has Strand's original work been consulted?

..and has posted pictures to prove it. Apparently he has 3 adults and two subadults.

i mean in Europe...

What about offsprings...?
The guy that Becky mentioned is from the UK :)

Let's just refer to them as Avicularia sp. "fasciculata". There are some in the U.S. as well.

Am I the only one that find that this spider looks like an Iridopelma sp.?:?

Just curious if anyone had the same idea, because it is the first thing that pops to my mind when I see the pictures.

Now before I get blasted and inquisitionned on to how I can say such a thing and everyone wants to burn me on a stake... I just looked at the picture and said to myself, hey it looks "related" to what we are being sold as I. hirsutum in the hobby. Nothing more, just an observation.

Anyone else?

fasciaculata is a brazilian species isn't it?
And Martin, when i saw the photo I said "Hey, this is an Iridopelma species!"
It really looks like the Iridos i find here in Brazil, the only difference is that this one is blue. I'm not saying it is and Iridopelma, it just looks like one.

Another thing, It comes from Bahia, NE Brazil. In this region iridopelma is the most common arboreal genus, not even sure if there are avics in that part of the country.
