    It seems the main true spider thread died off a bit. I figured I would make this to showcase my adventures with Araneomorphe and friends.

  11. My faves are the Latrodectus sp. Mexico & Latrodectus bishopi -- but they were all cool.
    (Well, the Deinopis sp. was a bit spooky for a former arachnophobe!)

    I never see anything like these around my home/yard.

    Loxosceles sp. panama

    Blue femur recluse is the new common name I’ve decided.

    Considering you’re in the US, that’s very normal. Deinopis can be found in parts of the country though.

  13. Darn you -- more beautiful pix - now I'm gonna want a L. bishopi!!!
    And why do recluses look so darn cute? I've heard they rarely bite unless truly cornered or disturbed by people. :)

    Just got three of these. To tiny to see any details (with the naked eye), can't wait till they grow.

    Mine are 1 molt from breeding. You’ll really appreciate them once they get about half an inch.

    Hehe. Just let it happen.

    They have that tiny little face that looks like a bowling ball. And yes, they rarely bite.

  16. What I really want is a black widow. I got bit years ago -- so sick, pain like gallstones and painful muscle spasms, fever -- the works. Had I not had the widow corpse, I'd have thought it was the 'flu. Even the small bite marks were evident on my arm/wrist. :(
    I'd like to have a widow in a more controlled environment.
    The widow that bit me meant no harm -- just felt threatened (was webbed up in my slide-out keyboard drawer from an old computer) and I guess I 'surprised' her and she felt threatened. I want a do-over where I am the carer, not the bite-ee!

    What's the news on L . deserta venom? I hear they're the mildest of the family

    Loxosceles venom is understudied, especially for species that don’t come in contact with humans very often. I’ve never seen any evidence to suggest any species has mild venom. On the other hand, South American species like laeta, intermedia, and gaucho have pretty toxic venom relative to the North American species.
