At the White Plains reptile expo, these were described as "New Mexico" sp. and that was it. Do you think it could be Hogna? Anyone know the species? Sorry for the blurry pictures, these were screen shotted off my Instagram story.

Probably Hogna carolinensis, or at least something in that genus.

Ventral images can be helpful in distinguishing between species of Hogna.

Awesome! She has 3 more, looking to pick one up. It looks like my Hogna carolinensis but with more of a cream color. I agree, a ventral shot would help more. Wish I got one! :banghead:

Definitely.
My H carolinensis came from Arizona they have a more light color as well so and didn't even have the jet black ventral but with the babies from last year after molting a dozen times they are black now!

Momma wasn't.

Here is a pick of mine after few molts she has gotten darker maybe because she is no longer in the deset who knows. But she is definitely lighter than the northern variety.

UPDATE: Apparently this species is hard to find in the hobby. I should have picked some up when I had the chance. :hurting:

How far West does the H carolinensis range extend?
