well red phase is just one that is the orange color as opposed to the more dull color variations that lack the vibrant orange. CedrikG's photo thread will show the best display of baboon pics IMO. my pic thread has photos of male and female P.murinus in the brightly colored form.

Funny, everyone always calls the red colour form an "usambara," and every other form as just a P.murinus. When I hear "usambara" I think of the red/ orange morph.

What is the locality of the orange, if not the Usambara mountains, then?

RCF = Usambara mountains area, probably extending to Arusha (Tanzania, also Kenya).

I beleive that we also find the Usambara mountain variant in this area as well.

Great thread with great insight I must say, RCF, DCF,TCF, and UMV, no matter what, it's one of the best tarantulas in terms of appeal, attitude, and popularity as I realized from sticking around here quite a bit.:D
