The sheer number of Gasteracantha that you've photographed is staggering, not to mention all the fantastic inverts and habitat shots! :worship:

I recently got back from conducting research in Peru, near Manu national park at 3000 m (but we regularly went up to 3300m and down to 900m). I noticed one of the Theraphosid species you said you didn't recognize, this one:

I've found multiple specimens of the species and they're actually a known species, Plesiopelma longisternale.

I'm actually quite jealous btw, I was supposed to go to Tambopata, or rather really wanted to, but some things came up and I was only able to go Villa Carmen instead, no tarantulas there sadly haha. Great photos though!

Cool, thank you very much for hint of the family Plesiopelma.
Why do you think it could be Plesiopelma longisternale as they are found in Argentina and Uruguay whichis quite far away and with a lot of barriers in between ?
Kind regards, Philip

You are right, I apologize, I went off the notion before that it was a Plesiopelma longisternale because someone in my group thought it was very similar without looking at location. I was able to narrow it down to the Plesiopelma genus because it looked very similar to specimens I've seen. Can it be infered that it can be called Plesiopelma sp. then?

Yeah he is lucky I wish I had the money to go on vacations. I would need a Tarantula sitter though.
