    Hi Volker
    I hope you are well!

    Going by what I remember from speaking to both Soren and yourself, I think the spider in the third picture is Ornithoctonus hainana - the spermethecae are much "higher" than schmidti which I seem to remember being a key difference between these two.

    As for the one in the second picture, I haven't looked closely at a moult. But it's very nice

    Natural intergrade between the two 'species'

    Does it swim well?
