Thats the best I have. Legs are completely white.. Yesterday I thought he was ornata when I was able to get a quick peek. I coaxed him out today and was surprised by what I saw.. I believe I know what he is but I want a consensus before I give my opinion.. Thank youPictures are not that easy to work with, and it being a ready male is not better. But i will have to say it is a poecilotheria vittata ready male. I dont see any yellow on these pictures, is that true, it does narrow down the options here, but can you give us a clear picture? Maybe move him to a clear container where picture quality is good!
I normally check front legs first, see if they match, then the 4 in the back. I am not a taxonomist by any means, i just look at the patterns on the legs, but i do use these places when looking at them ventrally for ID purposes. Then there is colouration to consider aswell. I have ID many poecs IRL, but that is much more easy to do for obvious reasons.
