    RTTB, where did you get your Aliatypus? I love our native trapdoors and consider them highly underrated. I have some C. torreya at the moment, and absolutely adore them even though I never see them. I would love to get some more species. I have a crazy travel schedule this month...which just happens to put me into the range of several eastern species. I'll be pulling some late nights to try to get some collecting in.

    I didn’t collect the Aliatypus. Jurassic Pets and Bugs in Cyberspace we’re carrying them a little while ago.

    Would have been even more gorgeous if 8 had my camera set up instead of just having my bloody phone. Explain it in "My Spiders" thread.

  11. I think she just accidentally hit ‘dislike’ instead of ‘like’. I’ve done it a couple of times, but I usually notice my mistake and change it right away.

    Had a feeling that's probably the case, but always best to check in case Ive somehow offended someone etc

    Oh no! I pressed like or that's what I thought I was doing, cos I was absolutely blown away by your photos. I love trapdoors. They are the least scary and most coolest looking spiders imo, on account of their proportionally shorter legs and primitive appearance.

    I'll try to undo the damage and change it to what it should be if it'll let me. I'm now worrying I've done it on other people's posts I've tried liking. Oh god!

    Edit: I was able to change it which is a relief. Don't know why I didn't notice to begin with, I must've been so into reading the next bit of the thread or maybe scrolling back up your pics.
    Really sorry my carelessness turned an intended compliment into a bit of negativity. I'm glad you asked or I might never have noticed. Don't like that idea!

    Thanks! I loved your pics and can't wait to see more. Those are some gorgeous spiders you've got there.

    And I'll be much more careful with my thumb in future lol

    The only thing more interesting is your profile picture. It's been many years since I last saw a carjacking lobster
