Both get about the same size, I believe. I think the L. klugi is a better looking T but that's just my opinion. As for price, here in the US the L. parahybana is a lot less expensive.

This is rather different looking species but it is difficult to find the real klugi in pet-trade...
The real klugi according the description in my knowlege has blackish overall color and red hairs on the abdomen... and some smaller than parahybana in size.

IMO the klugi wins hands down. I think its markings are a lot nicer than a parahybana. I don't really rate parahybanas, think they are a bit boring.Plus klugis aren't 10 a penny like parahybanas {D

BORING? You should see my L. parahybana leap to the cover of the tank to get a cricket!

No not boring. But they go through the ugly ducking stage! They are bottomless pits when it comes to crickets! ;P

Look here for a picture of an immature male Lasiodora klugi I used to have. A picture's worth a thousand words, as usual. ;)

Lassie wars...

I keep all of the Lassie's and love them all, but the Klugii does have a red tinge to its hairs that is not on the parahybana.
Both of these can get HUGE!! 11" legspans on males is not uncommon. :razz:

How do you know it's not uncommon? How many have you seen?

I've yet to see any user here post a picture with ANY spider that measures 11" on a ruler.

I keep all of the Lassie's
LOL greg, not to be too nit-picky, but I'm sure you don't keep all of them! :p

Quite a few.

Lasiodora's can achieve 11" legspans, especially the males. Ask any experienced breeder and he/she will attest to the fact.


LOL greg, not to be too nit-picky, but I'm sure you don't keep all of them! :p
There are rare lasiodora's that I don't have, I stand corrected. I meant all of them that are captive bred and are available. Parahybana, Klugii, Striatus, Striatipes and Difficilus are lassies I own ATM.
There are some rare Lassie's on Rick West's site that I would love to have!
;P :D :)

What this species is - Lasiodora striata? Tell me please?
Or You mean by "Lasiodora's=Lasiodora+Lasiodorides"?

If not, I woud rather very sceptic in all of these "Klugii, Striatipes and Difficilus" from pet-trade you have are properly Id'ed...

Mikhail,

He was probably talking about Lasiodorides striatus, which we do have in the hobby and I.D.'d. Sometimes confused, but the "real" one is around.

Anyone know when Bertani's revision of Lasiodora should be out?

I adore my little parahybana. I swear my Lenny must think he/she's auditioning for Wrestle Mania. The way it attacks crickets is hilarious. He/she is pretty darn fast too. It will be facing one way and the cricket is in a far corner behind it. Even before the cricket can twitch Lenny turns around in a flash and body slams the cricket. This all happens in a blink. As far as "Lassi's" go, I like the parahybana, but I have never owned a klugi (sp?). I don't always choose my T's by coloration anyway.

Eric, "probably" is not the proper word for any species - it must be such as iy is or sp.
This is You know very well. I undestand Your point and I knew about it already the striatus is in pettrade named Lasiodora or Pampho sp. as well...
I told of that and it shown also that a lot of "difficilis", "klugi" also Id'ed wrong way by some sellers...

L. klugi are the better "lookers" than the Lp, yet very close.... if you're getting a Lasiodora sp. for the "prettyness" id get the L. difficilis! ALTHOUGH, L. klugi and difficilis are more on the defensive/aggressive side! Where as L. parahybana are more skittish and most can be quite tolerant! Lp in my opinion should be the "stepping stone" in the Lasiodora sp.
