Anyone have any ideas which one of these species can get larger or are they about the same size full grown?

From what I know antinous usually gets to around the 8" mark... I am unsure of sp. goliath, I have yet to see this sp.

I have seen both as adults and size wise about the same. I have a SD goliath but I think the P. antinous are a better looking T. The SD's are coffee colored, the antinous are jet black with a bluish tint with reddish settae on their abdomens.

There are two locations of collection for antinous. Bolivian populations are reportedly larger, and in that case, should be about the same size as goliath. The other Peruvian population however, is supposed to be smaller...or not as large would probably be a better way to say it.

I totally agree that antinous is the better looking of the two.
