Hey, guys. I was looking in Tarantupedia and came across this:
To my knowledge the carapace of D. fasciatus is black and the pictures shown are D. pentaloris.

Did they actually get this picture wrong?

Yeah, they did. Here's a link to a thread that confirms you are correct and provides a reason for the common mislabeling of the species...

Yes, almost every D. fasciatus in the hobby is actually D. pentaloris - save for maybe the ones in Arachnid Addicted's collection (but do his really even count?).
