I did a google search, and absolutely Nothing came up for this T.
I was reading an article online that stated "...Phlogiellus xinping is Hong Kong’s only indigenous species of Tarantula..." (that is just an excerpt from the aforementioned article.)
I am curious as heck, and no google search lends an answer...

Doesn't seem to be in the hobby outside of Asia...


Seems to be a kind of nondescript, brown dwarf? Not sure, but when the guy pulls back in the video the flashlight size makes me think the t's are small (around 0:22-0:30)

I have heard it mentioned on Arachnoboards Facebook before. Probably by Asian hobbyist. I cant remember the post or anything about it apart from I thought it was found to be Yunnan south China?

There are many others with tiny mm's...;) Augacephalus ezendami comes to mind.
I am still so very new to this hobby. Though I have been thrust into it full-fledged with a surprise egg sac from my 2nd T, I am still such a kiddo here. Lol. Gah- has anyone else here had to deal with my sort of situation??? Hahaha!

I'm from Hong Kong, and when getting into the hobby I was wondering if we had any Ts. Did a little digging, and this little guy showed up, at first I wansn't that impressed (being small and dull colored). But now... knowing it's only found in Hong Kong, I WANT ONE! Has sentimental value~
