      Need Identification Help, Please!

      I was gifted this beautiful girl and I would like some help to identify her. I know that she is not an Aphonopelma seemanni, nor is she a Eupalaestrus campestratus.
      She is full grown at about 5". She is completely black with white markings and pinkish hairs. I don't have a moult to show her spermathecae, unfortunately. I will supply that when I can. I don't know the last time she moulted.
      Someone suggested Vitalius paranaensis or Vitalius sorocabae, but I would like to get more feedback.
      Here she is...

      She is pretty, but to be honest, I don't know.

      The only other one that comes to mind is perhaps Acanthoscurria juruenicola, or perhaps insubtilis.

      Any idea where the previous owner got her from?

      First thing that came to mind was Acanthoscurria juruenicola for me too. But I'm really not sure. Like you said, hopefully a molt will be more helpful! She is beautiful whatever she is!

      Got it!!
      She is a Pseudhapalopus spinulopalpus.
      I can't find a thing about them. I am keeping her just like any other SA terrestrial.
      Can anyone shed any light on temperament?

      I know a friend who has a Pseudohapalopus sp. short hair. She acquired it from a mutual friend, and it took some time for us to ID it, but we managed.

      As for its temperament, it was initially quite fiesty and defensive, but she spend time with it and it calmed right down.

      Tell you what, I will email Amanda at Tarantula Canada and ask her about these. We correspond from time to time, and so I am sure she will reply.

      I expect it might be a day or two, but I hope to hear back from her this week.

      I was thinking of emailing Amanda, we talk quite a bit at the shows and via email and she knows me well, but she is receiving her import today and is going to be very busy for the next week.
      They should have all the new stock on the pricelist by Sunday, in case you were waiting to hear what's new.
      Thanks for sending it off.

      Sorry, forgot to add that I came home this evening and moved her to a lower shelf. I understand that they don't want temperatures over about 75 degrees and will be more defensive at higher temps. My apartment is a southern exposure and can get pretty warm during the day.
      I went to take out the superworm I put in last night and she was quite calm. She just went into her hide. That is the first time I have seen her use it, maybe it took her this long to figure out that she is safe from me in there. She was much calmer than she has been.
      She is not terribly skittish... she let me take those photos of her after all. She is just more skittish than I am used to, but similar to the C.cyaneopubescens.

      Once she molts try to get a picture of the spermathecae. That will help with ID.
