B. vagans:

Cool! nice T! notice the 'pink' around the edge of the carapace and over the top of the fengs! (my first pic is pitch black!

And the second pic the carapace is alot lighter and lighter aswell are the hairs on abdomen!

What t's do you think they are!?

Just to add a bit more:

This first one is a different vagans than the one pictured above. The last three are the same as the first one, posted above.

They were both collected at the same time from the same place, and are both vagans.

Because of how difficult it is to identify vagans vs. sabulosum vs. rubronitens, etc., I'd try to identify them based on physical characteristics, not color.

Are you saying one is definitely vagans, one is definitely sabulosum, or are you not sure what either of them are? I guess I'm confused as to whether this is a guessing game, or if you're not sure yourself.

Off topic, Spiderworld, it might help if you close your quotes with [/quote]. ;)

The first one looks more like S. rubronitens than B. vagans, to me.

Second one looks more like my lighter-carapaced vagans.

Based solely on coloration, not physical characteristics. I'm not familiar enough with the latter to venture a guess based on it.

Hi all!

Both in the first post and all other spiders depicted here are B. sabulosum...

Yeah, heard it a thousand times.

Last I checked, it was B. vagans wild in Florida, not sabulosum, and mine were both caught from the wild population here.
