Harpactira sp. Robertson spiderling:
Well these little ones are growing nicely. :hap: :hap: Usually they run to hide when I pop the vials open, but this one was waiting for dinner and stayed put so I could snap a couple of pics. Wish I was better with the camera, cause these little puppies sparkle like newly minted gold.

They're an awesome wee species, I was lucky enough to win three of these off Craig McInnes last year so they're about the same size as yours currently. Although two of them are quite shy, the third one certainly isnt and will often try to make a run for it haha.

Certainly are a beautiful colour of gold, in the right light they truly do sparkle!

What size is a full grown specimen?
I doubt they will top 2 1/2 inches DLS. I expect them to end up close to the size of Heterothele villosella. I know that I'm sure enjoying watching them grow. They were very tiny when I first received them.
