    Hi all, I have a female B.Albopilosum, approx 4". What is the difference between a Honduran or Nicaraguan?
    Here are a couple of pictures of her.

    The Honduran is most common in the hobby, often referred to as the Hobby form whereas the Nicaraguan is referred to as the True form and tend to be more hairy.

    Nicaraguan B. albopilosum have way more curls. I have photos for comparison, but I can't get the picture of my adult female Nicaraguan B. albopilosum from my Instagram.
