You know, If you cleaned off that desk, you'd have room for MORE Ts!

JK.

Anyway, let me go ahead and let you know what I have.

1 2" Theraphosa blondi (unsexed)
1 5" Grammostola rosea (female, I think)
2 5"-6" Emperor scorpions (male, I think)

Coming next week:
1 1.5" Lasiodora cristata
1 0.5" Pterinochilus "Usumbara"

And 1 question. I've yet to find the species name for the Usumbara. However, I've seen a similar-looking T named as Pterinochilus murinus (I forget the common name, but it was grey). Are the Usumbara and the Pterinochilus murinus different color morphs of the same species, or are they different species within the same genus? If they are different species, what is the species name of the Usumbara?

whoami?

usumbara

Last i heard, usumbara was surrounded in controversy, and is both considered a color morph and a different species by different scholars in the same field.

Vayu is correct. There are two different schools of thought on the "usumbara" One is that they are a color morph of P. murinus. The other school of thought is that they're an entirely different species. I know that doesn't really clear anything up, but I hope it helps some.
