I bought a sling of this species a few months ago and just molted again yesterday, but I woke up to a bad molt. Three limbs are missing but otherwise "Sapphira" looks to be okay otherwise.

Wow what a beautiful T!
I have an empty 8×8×8 inch exo terra nano. Would this be an appropriate enclosure for an adult of this species?

My MM TUI went to Tar Can January 2017, where he was paired with 5 or so of their females and even though I sold him to them they still gave me some freebies of his offspring, as a Thank you in return.
The one in my post may actually be one of his offspring! I got mine as a freebie from TarCan in September of 2017.

I am thinking so since he "serviced" several of their females. It really does pay to ask Tarcan if they need a MM that you have, they will give a fair trade value if they need him. The thought of one little T that I raised went on to make so many slings and hobbyists happy is wonderful. Keeping him here in a container would have been a disservice to the community and his species.

Here's mine! Very small cute little fuzzy thing. Pinky nail size. Not much info on them besides a few threads.
Let it move into its new home yesterday, it's a prolific tittle webber. Hard to see but it put some webbing up in the last 24 hours. Fed it a cricket leg today. Took it well!
Super stoked on this little one! IMG_4701.JPG

Such a great looking T. Like a charcoal bronze with some super cool green!
Yeah I was super stoked I came across it.

@dangerforceidle I was admittedly happily shocked when I saw the "underlegs" of mine a few minutes ago were a bright iridescent greenish blue. Was absolutely blown away by the colouring. I knew the green carapace was nice, but when I saw the feet and the colour on the bottom of the leg under my flashlight I was shocked. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Who knew! I hadn't seen any reference to this.

You mean the iridescent scopulae (foot pads)? Or on other segments of the leg? I didn't notice any greenish on the tibia or femur segments, and I've had a decent view of them during one of her many threat posture tantrums. But I was trying to avoid her having an angry sprinting session.

They are definitely a beautiful species all around.

Here she is in her current form:

Went in for a closer look. From what I can see its the tips of the pedipalps, as well as the first leg tarsus and metatarsus only . It is lovely in colour as the legs of any Psalm. cambr. Playing with the light it was almost every color of the rainbow, but mostly green/blue and a little purple, little red. Had to catch it in *just* the right light. Might have even gone up as far as the tibia. Will start checking at different times with different lights, but it caught me really off-guard, I was not expecting such crazy lovely colours.
