See this. I suspect the P. formosa posted above is a result of a conjoined abdomen sometimes seen in Poecilotheria. There is documented cases of the same thing found in Cyriocosmus and P. irminia here on AB if you search for them. I suspect it prob happens to many other sp as well, just harder to see in sp. that dont have patterns on there abdomens.

Later, Tom
