    I believe she was collected in Borneo.

  7. Hi
    Where would I get a Deinopsis and are they hard to care for? I've only got one T, a B. albopilosum.
    Thanks. The Dein. looks so silly.

    Deinopis are difficult to raise in captivity, and I wouldn't recommend them for beginners of true spiders.

  9. Ok. I'll just love them from afar...
    Sigh. It's really a fascinating beast. Did they evolve those eyes because they're intense hunters or they live in dark forests?

  11. What I found so fascinating from the article was that they make that the crystal eye covering that enhances their night vision! Then when hunting time is over it goes away. Spiders are amazing. Each set of eyes have different roles. Amazing, just plain cool. Thanks for the link.

    Great pics as usual. The Clubionidae is not a Clubionidae however, but a Sparassidae. :)
    Also are you sure the Deinopis is actually adult? Im fairly sure its still a subadult male with one more molt to go.

    I'm open to hear why you think this. The majority of people on Facebook seem to think Clubionidae, saying the cephalothorax is too elongated. But Sparasidae wasn't completely ruled out.

    Maybe so, I just got some WC males in with swollen palps so I assumed they were mature, but they very well may have another molt. I never had mature males before, so I could be wrong. Thanks for your thoughts.

    The eye pattern, the wide/flattened shape of the prosoma (more elongated in clubionids), the laterigrade posture (prograde in clubionids), the metatarsal scopulae (only tarsal in clubionids), the rows of very strong tibial and metatarsal spines (pretty much absent in clubionids), the straight, downward oriented clypeus and chelicerae (generally more prognath in clubionids), the overall appearance ecc. Im 100% sure it's a juvenile sparassid.
    As for Facebook, its honestly a horrible place for spider identifications. I gave up long ago. :D

    As for the Deinopis, expect an other molt. This genus is very sexually dimorphic. Adult males have very thin abdomens and extremely long legs (more or less depending on the species, extremely long in one of the cameroon species thats around in the hobby now). Males generally have a darker coloration with contrasting white bands. Also the palps of mature males are overall very elongated and distinctive and the bulbs large and conspicuous (ex: https://photos.smugmug.com/Arachnids/ARACHNIDSNewGuineaAraneae/New-Guinea-Spiders-Deinopidae/i-HFBvBdq/2/X2/Deinopis subrufa Male (swollen palps) New Guinea Australia BL 23.7mm-X2.jpg)

    Thanks for the input. I'd much more prefer a sparassid. Funny enough, If I go back to Facebook and tell them I got a ID on Arachnoboards, they will probably laugh at me and tell me AB is a joke for ID's lol. I'll take your word for it though, as you gave me a more detailed answer. I'll update photos here when ( if ) it molts again.

    Thanks the Deinopis pic, I do they they need another molt now.

    Thanks, Tom

    No problem, glad i could help. Keep posting pics! I exclusively keep araneomorphs so this top is very enjoyable. :)

    @Philth what would you recommend for starter large true spiders, like Heteropoda? I'm very interested in them, but short lifespans and blinding speed worry me.
