Looking for a Euathlus pulcherrimaklaasi care sheet. If you don't know where one is but you have one please give me the info from your experience
Well, the first thing to figure out is what species your looking for information on.I know this is an old post but seeing how the Euathlus pulcherrimaklaasi has been around for a few years I am wondering if someone has more detailed husbandry info on this SP?
This is a shining example as why proper labeling is important for not only hobbyists but dealers alike.Now that the potentially real E. pulcherrimaklaasi is back in the trade, it will make things even more confusing for many hobbyists.
I would be not so confidenced in this case...The add I am looking at has it listed as "Euathlus pulcherrimaklaasi - Metallic Femur Beauty - Female 3" W " and she is from a reputable dealer that frequently visits AB.
So I am gonna go ahead and presume its the ones being imported now and need proper husbandry info.
I agree, has anyone found a picture of the real one?or maybe, one of these websites has just gotten old and out of date? :?
This is the reason I wrote "potentially" the real E. pulcherrimaklaasi in my post. Personally, if I were selling this spider myself, I would call it Euathlus sp. "pulcherrimaklaasi".im still confused in general...
Platnick's "The World Spider Catalog" has pulcherrimaklaasi listed as this:
mf pulcherrimaklaasi (Schmidt, 1991)....................Ecuador [urn:lsid:amnh.org:spidersp:001996]
while at the same time, if you go to www.birdspiders.com, Rick West's pic and documentation of the sp. is in Chile.
so which is it, Ecuador or Chile? are these recently imported ones from chile REAL pulcherrimaklaasi or have we yet to receive the real ones into our hobby?
or maybe, one of these websites has just gotten old and out of date? :?
Keep in mind that many of Rick's photo's are not taken in the wild, but at his home.if you go to www.birdspiders.com, Rick West's pic and documentation of the sp. is in Chile.
