    Aphonopelma bicolouratum and Brachypelma boehmei what are the characteristics that I should look for in IDing the two?

    The brachy has black femurs and the red fades toward to foot, the aphono has a more brown cast and the leg color is more single tone plus the aphono male goes black at maturity it should also probably run you more money

  4. There is no debate really to be had. You have a bicoloratum no doubt about it.

    As a former owner of an A. bicoloratum (which I mistakenly believed to be a B. boehemii), I can also add that it was the slowest growing T I have ever owned, bar none.

    OK, it's not a debate but Rob C & plunge thought it was the Brachy.
