What is the max size of the Hapalopus sp columbia large? I have two unsexed juveniles. growing very fast but still unable to determine sex. they are both 2 inch dls.

After months, one finally dug a burrow, The other one is still out most of the time, webbing like crazy. I read somewhere that males tend to be smaller than females of this species?

Ive read somewhere on AB that males hook out at 2"?
Well yeah males are generally smaller.. Max size means the biggest female recorded or something :D But yeah, I would say that the smaller the species, the bigger difference in size between M and F would be... Just look at black widows :D :D

No joke. My E. truculentus pair looks like two different species. He's hardly larger than her carapace.

I have MM H. sp Columbia that are just shy of 3" and I understand adult females can reach 4". The size of the MM seems to vary greatly within a species ie: my T. ockerti male just matured and his molt measured 5.5" so I'm sure he is almost 6" where most that I have seen/read are 3.5-4.5"

Exactly...the size of all MMs is greatly variable, some individuals mature really small, others really big. I've had versicolor mature anywhere from 3-5", P. cams anywhere from 4-6.5", A. ezendami from 1.5" to nearly 4", etc., etc.
