I know a dealer in the United States who is selling them at the moment. Photos are some screenshots from my Instagram story, possibly the worst photos in history.

carolinensis- all black coxae and sternum, most of venter black

coloradensis- Epigastric furrow, sternum, and coxae black. Venter bare, small black blotch on base of spinnerets. sometimes with black spots forming a two lines along the venter

Nevermind; I misread the title as Hogna carolinensis.

From what I heard they are a little smaller than carolinensis.

They are significantly smaller than carolinensis, only reaching 2.5" in legspan at max, and a bodylength of around 20 mm, about the size of a grass spider

Theres a couple i caught a few days ago

As you can see, they're quite distinct looking from carolinensis, smaller. Theyre only found west of the colorado river in atriplex scrub, which is common throughout the great basin
