I have an Eauthlus Pulcherimaklaasi, E sp Green and E sp Blue . Are they all different or is Pulcherimaklaasi the old name for one of the other two ?

Pulcherimaklaasi Is the old name the true Pulcherimaklaasi I belive isn't in the hobby, E. sp Green and E. sp blue are different species as far as I know, that may eventually change though. I have adult females of both, very pretty T's as adults.

That's what I was told , so o
May just have another sp green or sp blue Eauthlus . They are all slings anyway, strange that as they were all sold by the same person to me , as all three different names, and the people I got them from have their own business selling Ts and inverts , so would have thought they would have known about this !

If only they were scientifically classified, same with E sp Red and E sp Yellow, and virtually all the small Chilean tarantulas. The good news is a biologist recently told me there is research underway working on that!

@sdsnybny beautiful, thanks for the pics! I still don't get the 'green' though...
Thats because its 2 different species the Euathlus sp "Green" has a dark metallic green on the femur thus the "common names" Blue femur beauty and Green femur beauty.

Here is my best shot of E. sp "Green", the green on the femur is very dark metallic and difficult to catch.
@EulersK
