New here..I've been working in Peru for the last two months in the Jungle. I brought my camera gear for night-time walks and I've gotten lots of photos of some spiders I can't ID and some I could. My friend suggested this forum and that some folks here could ID a couple of them.
Peruvian Pink Toe right outside my hut

Spitting Spider

Some type of BIG orbweaver

I have no idea, hiding among banana leaves

I have no idea, hiding in a rolled banana leaf

Another no idea

Baby Tarantula of some sort

Another Pink toe hiding in rolled coffee leaves

A big spider trying to camouflage along a vine..no idea on this one either

Poor old Weevil with some type of micro Arachnid parasites on him


Thought maybe you guys could help with some ID's..
Thanks,
JP

That scytotid is awesome! Also the one in the banana leaf, and the one immediately after it.

I just wish I had actual ID's for them.


That banana leaf spider looks a lot like the biggest spider, a demonweb terror. Probably you found a baby. :p

Thanks!

Seems a sort of genus Phoneutria to me :)
My buddy who's kind of a spider nut himself, suggested
Phoneutria fera

Thanks for sharing those pictures.
Thanks

Beautiful pictures! I'm 90% sure the 4th and 9th are Phoneutria boliviensis :) Definitely not fera.
