What difference is there between the two species? To me it seems like L. difficilis is more hairy, and that's about it. I've also read that the patella of L. difficilis is more defined, but I can't really see a difference in the pictures I've seen.

Visually as far as I can tell L. parahybana has pinkish setae on abdomen and the legs and L. difficilis has red setae on the abdomen and black on the legs

Internet pictures are hard to go by anyway. Too many factors go into lighting so pictures rarely give you a sense of what spiders actually look like in person.

That's why you just have to buy all of them.
