    Wow, that's a looker for sure! Nice to see a news article that's not full of the usual fear inducing tripe too.

    Yes, considering that the article is a few weeks old and that there was another nice article about spiders in general in the paper (written by Angela even I think) I was surprised not to see anything on the forum about it.

    The spider in that thread is Pterinopelma sazimai. Ignore mentions of Vitalius etc as that thread was from last year before the species was described and was just speculation.

    I imagine now the type site is published it wont be long before some of these species make their way out of Brasil, probably against their own desires and against the desires of the legal authorities...

    Unless some made it out already of course!

    If you want the original description paper Ralf, let me or one of the mods/committee know. Theres nice pics in the description too.
