I realize the difficulty of determining a species without being there/seeing it, and ill try to work a pic up here somehow. But i was sold a P.nigricolor about 3-4". The dealer recieved it at a show, and has been known to be a little off on his identifications, so i am questioning it.

Mainly i question the fact that most of the pics ive found do not show this species having a starburst pattern. This spider has a copper/orange starburst on its carapace, with purplish hairs on its abdomen and legs. The hairs are alot longer/whispier than ive seen on most species. Ill try to add a pic later.
