Another Spider Photo From Cyprus.

Hello again everyone

 

This "guy" was hanging on the wall in a bedroom.

 

I have been looking a little around to find out what it is.
I'm not sure think its a Chaetopelma Gracile.

Anybody intresting in confirming?


The picture isn't that great but i was not "allowed" to open the box to take photos where i am at the moment he he.

The little "guy" is aggressive and looks painful to be bitten by those fangs.

 

I will upload a greater photo later when i get home.

 

-Zyr.

    Almost certainly a Chaetopelma and looks like a second species, C. karlamani, should be considered besides C. gracile in Cyprus.

    Hello there.

    After many seconds of internet search I reckon Bombus is spot on with Chaetopelma karlamani the Cyprus Tarantula.

    Best wishes Lewis
