  • South American Funnel Web. Trechona venosa?

    Metallic gold and black mygalomorph with very long spinarettes (typical of Dipluridae) Candamo Tambopata Reserve, Peru

    Legspan 3 inches, body 1.5 inches.

    Opportunist spider that makes its extravagent webs at ground level, in trees or as shown here, in an old bamboo trunk.

    Tentative identification from Latreille 1832. Could be something else altogether as some descriptions give T. venosa stripes on the abdomen.

    The things that come to those who wait may be the things left by those who got there first!

    I don't think it's Trechona venosa:

      Soren, do you have a pdf or current link for that paper?
      Only hobbyists can eliminate the demand for wild caught animals.
