This is not P.regalis, can you tell me that this is Poecilotheria?

Thanks a lot!

I would say fasciata, because of the purple but that's just me most pokies resemble eachother anyway. Like formosa fasciata striata regalis

Need a ventral pic to really tell :) But looks like a formosa to me.
You're right on the ventral shots but this is definitely not a formosa. Formosa doesn't have any yellow on it whatsoever. It's an all white, black, and grey spider. :)

Edit:
(and a little purple and brown, but no yellow) :p My guess would be P. fasciata.

I seem to remember a pretty good post that helps ID this genus by their leg markings. I'm on my phone or I'd try dig it up. If I am recalling correctly it was pretty informative.

in the dark all cats are black, so not really
Only for folks who are new to Poecilotheria they look the same, but there is so much difference

Easy to say once the ventral shot was posted... :p

To be honest, I only took a quick glance at the spider. As I said, it was only a guess.

My fasciata looks remarkably like my regalis just a bit more defined in color. And longer legs. But yes I do agree entirely. I am somewhat new to pokies but i do have 3 p.ornata 2 p.regalis 1 p.fasciata 4 p.Subfusca and a male p.metallica so I have never seen in person all of them I can't tell much a difference through pics.


But that's definitely a regalis =p tan band dead give away.
