looks like a hairy version of my gigas...but i don think you can get an ID just based on the pics though, they all pretty much look like that to a naked eye.

Ah, we don't really know what Hysterocrates we have in the hobby anyway. Just label it Hysterocrates sp (with locality name if available, probably 'Cameroon'), and take good care of it. :)

I have read that gigas start off as dark black after the moult and get redder as they approach the next moult. They are known as "tauney red spiders" in some parts of the world. At least you can figure out if it is or isn't a Gigas...
