Today I put the male into female's cage,and the female start drumming and try to be close the male,but the male alway run away.

The male have been seen making sperm webs already,and all process in the dark room.

Did I need to improve any detail?Why the male always run away:bigtears:

Breeding takes patience. Some males are very nervous, some to the degree that they dont mate. One trick is to place males container inside females for some days, then open the lid to the males container. Another trick is to let the males cohabit with the female. This genus females are generally not agressive and prone to eat the males, even if this can happen!

How experienced in breeding tarantulas are you?

Are you trying in 2001? 2 of those species changed names a long time ago.

Thanks for the enlightning on the P ornata! I have only bred P regalis and P fasciata, but heard that most of the speicies females ate pretty unagressive towards males. But i trust you

Yes OP, scientific names are universal and only change when scientists choose so

scientific names do not change based on country.
umm... I think you misunderstood
I mean I usually use chinese common names not scientific names.
So I use chinese names to googole and get the wrong scientific names.

Hi,I seach the scientific names and get that G.aureostriata change to G.pulchripes,Holothele incei change to Neoholothele incei is that correct?or I still get the outdated information?
