Looks like a blue phase Aphonopelma seemani to me. Or some dark form. I suck at Iding Ts though.

Definately not Aphonopelma seemanni; just in case, does it have rusty orange spinnerets?

It does seem to have an Aphonopelma spp. or Acanthoscurria spp. feel to it though.. I could be wrong, I've never seen this T before. Sorry. Where'd you get it?

How could you say definately not but then say this.......
:confused:

I readly admit I suck at Iding random Ts. But blue phase seemanni and or a dark form look very similar to this one. I am always wrong though when it comes to this, its my big weakness.

Because Aphonopelma seemanni has rusty orange spinnerets and have an orange pale underside, which I don't see. That is 100% way of Iding A.seemanni. I was saying definately not to seemanni, not Aphonopelma. I really should start to clarify more on my posts...:?

I'll have to look a bit longer to give you a better idea.

It's def not A. seemani. Underside is the same color as rest of the body.

Novak is right, it is definitely not an A. seemani. :) All you have to do is look at the included moulting pictures to see that it is quite black ventrally. I'm sorry that I don't have a guess as to what it might be.

Ok, I got a side question. Both of you spelled "seemanni" with 1 "n", I always thought it was 2 "n"s, and after a quick search I find that many spell it with two and one. So which is it?


Back on topic, wow moose, you stumped us..

Haha, sounds like my little Grammostola aureostriata. I hope she can be IDed soon, so I can look into buying one of these oddballs. :D

ok i agree she looks like a Lasiodorides striatus. but aren't they supposed to be pretty big? this girl is very small. i would assume its some kind of dwarf. just want to see if anyone has any other ideas.

I have a striatus and though they get about 7-8" mine is 5" and a slow grower, she is a slate blue with orange markings like yours. In fact I had a A. seemani but traded it when I got my striatus. Ive had my striatus for about 2years and she only molted this year, and not last year- so they take time. Mine also alows me to hold her at times, and she is not a flicker at all, thought sometimes gets flighty. She is a pretty docile spider on the whole, and definatly not an easy species to find. Look at your striatus in the sun light and you will see a really nice slate blue color, making this one of my favorite t's to own.

When I saw the pics my first thought was: "Lasiodorides striatus" too.
