    Confirmation on your specimen or for the species?
    A revision on its way or?

    on my specimen. the genus is a mess..... but then what genus isn't?? on top of that 2 more Brachy species were added this year (schroederi and verdezi (sold a lot as B. pallidum)) but no revision in sight. even if i have confermation on my specimen, would i post here? all the replies i would get would be like: looks like a smithi to me or mmmm just another colorform of smithi like annitha.
    ah well time will tell! my spider donated a leg to science, a English guy does DNA researche on Brachypelma.

    Verdezi? I missed that one :) Is it schroederi that are all black? Or is that..yet another one?! ;-)
    About the picture, can you mail it to me? If so use this addy: minax@chello.se
    Once they thought auratum to be a highland form of smithi..
    I dont really like to speculate - if its described as a species I consider it to be a species until someone proves that its not. Only hunches and suspition is not enough for me. I guess its too easy to describe new species and get it published.
    Sounds interesting, I hope the english DNA guy does a good job.

    Yeah, another thread revival, but where better to post new pictures of Brachy's?

    Up first, is a very young B.smithi

    He should grow-up looking a lot like "Alice"

    Then here's my young female B.emilia "Gypsy", just starting the really bright colors

    Last up. is "Fierce", a male B.vagas close to the same age as "Gypsy" though a little slower of getting his adult bright red

    don't you love it, when they start showing their colors?
    hey your pics are nice and in focus! you could place yout spiders on leaves, outside of the tank, this way you dont get those nasty tank edges on the pic! also it is easier to light them this way! good luck!

    Yes, I do love it! And there's nothing like a freshly molted T. :)
    Thank you very much for hints and tips!!! Highly appreciated, because I really admire your pics...

    My Mexican Fire Leg. I just picked up this guy from Botar at Lee Watson's Swap. {D It's about 1.5 inches though.

    Maybe because it is very similar to B. vagans. I have one B. angustum but still so small about 1,5'' legspan.

    Nice picture. This red on knees looks like on knees of B. auratum. Maybe It is just monitor colour.
