anyone have a photo of a bonnetina cyanofemur (mexican blue femur) or euathlus pulcherrimaklassi (blur femur beauty) handy and readily available? i did a google search and came up with nada.

also, any info on either of the species is totally helpful!

thanks!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

The first image-hit of google's and yahoo's serach for pulcherrimaklaasi looks exactly like my pretty little lady, who I was going to introduce to you all tomorrow(I think I will still; not that anyone actually cares but :) )
I was kind of looking forward to it, since I haven't seen the genus-name I bought her as mentioned on any american site, at least no community or dealer-site. Now, for all I know, you all sit with one like little lady :/ Then again, that first pic doesn't look much like the others that are found.

About name-accuracy:
Considering these names are bound to be spelled wrong in at least 76% of the places they are mentioned on the net, it's not easy to know what's 'right'.

I always think the name that gives the most search results will be the right name. And of course Rock West's archive can be a good source to get the right names.

Yeah, the great thing about "Rock" is that he always spells the names right.

I wonder what they really look like, and if I do have one.
It says next to the pic resembling my spid, that it digs a little, and isn't very active, which doesn't seem like something I've seen. Oh well. We'll see tomorrow what you think or so.

Pictures... care... whatever I could find. Couldn't find much on Bonnetina... I know Swift them for sale right now though and I think he had the other species for sale awhile back but don't quote me on it.

P.S. E. pulcher... was formerly classified under the genus Paraphysa so if you search under that scientific name you may find more info!
