Your right James, I think the T.apohyshis has a longer leg span, while the T. blondi is heavier bodied.

According to Stan Schultz, it all depends on who you talk to with the biggest being: T.blondi, T.apohyshis and L.parahybana. He has seen/knows people with 11-13" specimins of all of the above. Also I dont know how everyone measures them so that could account for 2 inches being counted or un-counted right there.
