    I have had a juvenile H. lividum/C. lividum (sorry, not quite sure if the new name is confirmed yet or what haha) for a while now and it just molted yesterday! I noticed some bluish coloring on its legs, and I'm wondering, do you guys have any pictures of mature/fully colored individuals? I know females are much more vibrant than males, but for some reason I can't seem to find a good picture when I look it up. I'm not sure if the pictures are doctored or just not the same species, but they all seem to be inconsistent. If you have any pictures of your cobalts, I'd love to see them!

    The move from Haplopelma to Cyriopagopus was called into question in a more recent paper (Hauke, 2017 -- there is English within the article even though it's mainly German), so there are definitely conflicting recent publications.

    But, based on World Spider Catalog you are correct and C. lividus is the accepted name at this time.

    As far as I'm concerned, until it's changed on the WSC it is C. lividus

    I tend to agree, but it definitely doesn't help a somewhat confusing situation.

    Thanks for the replies! I, for some reason, didn't know the gallery was searchable lol, I'll look there. And it sounds like it's C. lividus now, so thanks for that info!

    No worries. The forums can take a hot minute to get accustomed to navigating - when I first visited the site, I couldn't figure out how to access the sub forums and kept getting lost in the gallery, as little sense as that makes. :hilarious:

    As has been said, the search tool is powerful ;) But here is my adult female, taken the day I got her from someone too scared to deal with her.
