The white bands you speak of are present in P. ultramarinus, P. vespertinus, P. fortis to name a few. Have a look at Rick's site at these species. And I know of many species with red setae on the abdomen, over half of the described Pamphos. Have a look at the caput on either one of Ernie's photos. Pamphobeteus, Xenesthis, T. apophysis, and a few other genera share this shimmer on the caput, but not Lasiodora.Originally posted by Haploman
the unique red hairs above the abdomen and the white bands at the end of femurs are unique in L parahybana which are absent on any pampho species

Edit: by the first pic, my guess is def. parahybana.. the last ones though.. those look like pics of a blondi to me =D :?
I agree that the 1st spider in this thread looks like L. parahybana. The one that I was referring to as possibly L. polycuspulatus was the one in MR. T's photo. In the photo it appears to have leg stiping.Originally posted by Haploman
Rick wests site shows adults not 1-4 inch slings, Lasiodorides polycuspulatus as striping down the legs like the A seemanni, T blondi slings are really silvery gray with really fuzzy legs and thats all of them, I owned many lasiodora parahybana and its definately it. the 1st - 2nd instars they were a brown then after the third molt they turned the color like on the first pic.

Here's a thought... Maybe whomever you got your T from got it confused by just labeling it LP. That could possibly stand for Lasiodorides polycuspulatus. It could have been mixed in with their L. parahybanas,then moved to a larger container where the entire name (L. parahybana) was written out on it. I have pesonally never seen a sub-adult L. polycuspulatus, but from the many adults I have seen, it wouldn't be that far of a stretch from your photo.
Here is a link to Rick West's photo
