This is a gorgeous T! But it says some have it as a Cyclosternum sp., others as a Chromatopelma. I am wondering, is it more of opinion or... ?

Ah, I got into searching for this thing awhile ago. All I was able to conclude, is that it is a somewhat smaller species, originally being labeled as a Cyclosternum sp., then later Chromatopelma sp. After that, who knows.

Nice find. That's what I needed to see.

No, it is not T. cyaneolum.

Its most probably a Homeomma sp.

Well, it is currently T. cyaneolum... this description may or may not be correct, but that is where it stands at the moment.

i found one of these at a local pet shop a little over a year ago or so. the blue and red are stunning after a molt. mine is a fairly mellow T as well, and spends a good deal of time in the open to view. i'm pretty sure it's a female as well. :)
