Just sheerly out of curiousity, but on a scale of 1 through 10, how potent is P. cambridgei venom supposed to be?

I've not seen much in the way of bite reports for Psalmopoeus species, but it is best to be cautious and assume that it's more potent than your average new world spider. The genus is closely related to the Poecilotheria which is known for some very nasty bite reports.

Thank you. I had read that they were closely related, so was thinking maybe that was the case.
