Hi all,

I know this is one of the many 'look at my molted spider' threads, but this little bugger is becoming my favorite, and I just want to show him off :rolleyes: .

He increased about twice in size with this molt, and he's about 2" now.

Enjoy




Look at that butt!!

Beautiful! I think a few Pamphobeteus sp. will be the next additions to my T family. They are awesome.

Thanks for posting the pics!

Hi Martin, thx for clearing that up for me. I know there has been a lot of name swapping regarding this species, some say it's a Vitalius platyomma, others say it's a Pamphobeteus sp. "platyomma"...
It was sold to me as a Pamphobeteus platyomma, but I guess I'll just call it Pamphobeteus now :).
