I wouldnt expect them to get the size of everetti or sabah, but definitely larger than rufus.

This female is currently at about 6" or a little more, and has been fully mature since last cycle. males mature around 4.5" and are extremely fragile/short lived... like weeks after maturity.

Shes hopefully gravid this time, as she molted out on my last round

Well, they do look pretty different, not too hard to distinguish just based off pictures IMO.

theyre an extremely rare species even in your country
The Central Mindanao sp is the rarest of the three (South, Oriental & Central), certainly on my wishlist but still unlucky to find one.
I have three South Mindanao sp and all are shy and reclusive. Any small vibration is enough to make them run back their burrows.

Hey having a hard time tracking down information on the P. Sp Rufus. I'm trying to find anything, name changes, etc. A part of me gave up and just settled with a general description of Phormingochilus. I would honestly like more information though, a better point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

It's still Phormingochilus sp. "Rufus" for now, I recently acquired a sling and I keep it the same as any other Asian arboreal species.

Yeah, I keep my P.Sp Rufus the same as my Pokies and my P. Cambridgei.
For the life of me I can't find actual information on them. I'm not looking for husbandry so much as I'm looking for taxonomy. Thank you Grim for the reply, I appreciate it.

Anyone have any pics of O. Sp. malthai? Juvie and adult. Are they true fossorial or like to be arboreal. I have one I thought was c lividus but am being told it is O. Malthai. It did burrow and acted as fossorial for a while and now closed up its burrow and is always on top substrate. Need to rehouse it and want to make sure I do it right for the species it is. Thoughts?
