I have 2 of them one i managed to mate but when i put the male in the faunarium of this female he does nothing she is mature for sure so i dont know i just thing its not a platyomma ! This is a picture of her the lid is 6 cm in wide!

That looks suprisingly Theraphosa-ish to me. But then again, I'm not very familiar with the Pamphobeteus genus.

And it looks like the sack wasn't rolled properly and things settled a bit.

They really do don't they, those were my exact thoughts upon first seeing one... the fabled "Chicken Spider" belongs to this genus.

I'm guessing shes a good 7" +

Looks to be P. antinous??...possibly??

.....and as for the versi sac...looks like a possible ruptured egg, or eggs, early on in the sac...maybe she fanged, or tarsal clawed a few, while she was wrapping it...
