These three spiders are the last three that i have that im not sure about. They were all sold to me as stripeknees, that could mean anything:confused: Please help me identify these. I believe that the second two are the same spieces, becuase they look very similar. The first one is jet black, while the second two have more purple highlights on the carapace. Any quesses?

They all seem to be Aphonopelma seemani\ Costa Rican Zebra. The first is the black form, and the second and third are the brown form.

They all look like A.seemani to me too.
I have a brown form but the shop I go to has a black form as well.

The twins liked the brown so we got the brown.

And hon.

Ask, ask ask ask ask ask.
Always ask for help when you need help.

If people don't want to answer they won't.
But I don't think Anyone would want you to stop asking.

Good luck with them.
they are lovelies. :)

Considering you got them at a petstore, chances are VERY good that they're all A. seemani....

I dunno, though, the first one kinda looks like E. murinus to me, am I nuts?

Yup ;)

You can see it has the bald patch on its abdomen from kicking urticating hairs. Ephebopus have their urticating hairs on their pedipalps. Hence, it cannot possibly be any Ephebopus species.

I also have no doubt that they are all A. seemanni. Then, of course, I'm just repeating what everyone else has already pointed out.
