so i went to my l.p.s earlier and saw this. At first i thought p. Lugardi or at first glance p. Chordatus but no, the owner says he bought it from a friend who doesnt know anything about it. So im just wondering if its a hybrid or a natural colour form. Iv heard the dark colour form isnt even in the hobby so im a little bit :? If its worth getting i wil pick it up a.s.a.p. But if its a genetic mess i will leave well alone. Its a light ash-grey colour just like a chordatus. Thanks

Just going off color isn't a very reliable way of identifying spiders.
When you say grey I think of TCF P.murinus... though I'm curious as to why you know it's an OBT.


If you get your hands on it, definitely post a picture! Sounds interesting either way.
In the meantime, check out http://www.baboonspiders.de/
They have a nice key, and some pics too.

I actually had a similar situation. I bought a small juvie TCF "P. murinus" from an LPS That was luckily female. Her spermathecae suggests it's a lugardi.:D
