You have already met the female of my species in the gallery. Here I am showing off my Sunday best.
The aculeatus eye star is there but the smooth skin and what appears to be much more webbing discounted that species as an immediate guess. When I went to enlarge it I found you left a give away in Easter egg form on the genus so it is the smaller abaculus?
No, it is not A. abaculus. This species gets much larger.
The first photo looks like a ringer for Norman's sp 5 (pg 240) with the webbing and coloration
Abdopus #5 mating
That's it. Here is a shot of a pair mating. The female is a bit upset and is displaying a brown stripe.
I am a sucker for lots of webbing . Is it going to get a species name soon?
Separate names with a comma.
