Last time I posted pics of my Avicularia, the vote was for it being an A. avic. Now I have new pics, freshly molted. So is the vote still for common pink toe?
Tell me what you think.

With the state of the genus Avicularia being what it is, and the fact that no one can make a positive id from a picture, I think your safest bet is to label it as "Avicularia sp. 'avicularia'". we all know Avicularia is a muddy genus at best, with a lot of "species" that look amazingly similar.

I have to agree 100% although we can evidently eliminate a few species from the guessing game, alot of species do look rather similar. This also results in Hybridization that is often un-noticed, only adding to the confusion.
