Thanks Wayne H

Well it looks like Martin is right. Here is a pic I found of H longipedum. Beautiful spider.

Hello Wayne,

it's an undescribed Haplopelma species also knowen as Haplopelma sp. "longipedum". Some dealers still sell it as "Cyriopagopus paganus" which is most likely a different species – the problem to confirm this: the holotype of C. paganus is lost. Anyway, the one on the photo is a member of the genus Haplopelma.

all the best,
Martin
I think that one is still open for debate...
