Pampho ultramarinus gets my vote. Here's a pix of one of my subadult gals. She has yet to get full adult coloration, when she does she'll have blue femurs!! She soo big now I hope that she'll shed out mature soon. P. ultramarinus is said to have more babies than typical of pampos.
Hi Art and Bryan,
Yep, both P.antinous and P.ultrmarinus are indeed spectacular. P. ultramarinus would have to be one of the most colorful T's in the hobby, but it is sure hard to look past antinous, man those things are formidable! Like Bryan said, vespertinus are also one of the most spectacular spiders around.
Have you seen pics of Martin Nicholus' trip to locate the "Chicken Spider" (Pamphobeteus sp.)? I was amazed to see juveniles the size they were still in the burrow with the mother.
Although I'll never be able to keep any members from this genus(thanks to the wonderful importation laws in Oz), they are for my mind one of the most underrated genera in the hobby. Actually, I laugh when I see such high prices for Xenesthis spp. when Pamphos are SO close morphologically and can be had for under a third the price, people don't know what they're missing out on! I guess it's all to do with wanting rarity, can't understand it at all.
