    Thank you!


    No, on the right there is a female of P. cavimanus from Tanzania.
    Infact this species is absolutely smaller than P. dicator.

    P. dictator is 155 mm long.
    The female of P. cavimanus is 95 mm.
    I have some species of genus Pandinus in my private collection and this P. dictator is the biggest.

    Exactly what I was thinking!

    I did not know what A.p. meant? Use the species' epitheton and everybody will understand ;) It's not like it takes too much time..

    A.austalis hector morph is pretty rare. I've kept 15 of them few years back. Also i think C.bicolor is quite rare.

    C infamatus are extremely rare only a a handful of people in Europe have them.

    well, actually it is more common than a handfull of people in the EU hobby circuit, not something special or anything......at least not in northwest Europe
     
  9. Troglorhopalurus translucidus is kind of rare.:D

    I have seen a lot of people in EU with a few species that were labeled as C.infamatus that were in fact another Centruroides. The last time I checked, no one in EU had them outside of Germany,Belgium, and The Netherlands..And Krist Langenberg was the only one that had them in Sweden. I could be wrong they may have spread since last Jan. but they are an awesome species I know I would love too have them here in the states. The young look like little bumble bees.

    Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Northwest europe thus.......A couple of years back we got 'overrun' by 5-6 Centruroides species with three stripes on their dorsum, meaning that they where very similar in appearance. I never saw any misidentified specimens in The Netherlands or Germany, but I don't know for other countries......You should be able to get some of these specimens......
