Anyone here who already obtained some Tarantula species from Philippines?


This one is an Ornithoctoninae sp. South Mindanao. PicsArt_12-11-05.34.06.jpg

I've got a couple, but they're both still fairly small.

Orphnaecus philippinus


Phlogiellus sp. "palawan" (Phlogiellus johnreylazoi?)

I obtained it from Aklan province.

I’m quite puzzled of what genus this belongs to, It makes me think that Philippines do quite have a lot of tarantula species. :astonished:
Yes Philippines quite a lot undiscover species, actually it also have a large one than Ornithoctoninae sp. Mindanao South, the Ornithoctoninae sp. Oriental, they reach up to 6"-7" DLS quite awesome.

Indeed! I’ve heard about that too. I’m also intrigued about that Orphnaecus sp “Panay blue”. A beautiful tarantula which is in the same island as where I live. Though, I have never seen one yet as they’re quite rare.

Is sp. Palawan suspected to actually be johnreylazoi?

Well... I've wondered if they might be the same. I'm not sure, though. P. johnreylazoi was only described in 2016, it's from Palawan, and from photos it seems to look very similar to what was previously sold as sp. Palawan. I posted a thread about this a while ago but didn't get much response:

If you or anyone else has more information I'd love to hear it!
