    In January 2015 I posted on here that I'd selected a few dwarf Ts that I was going to buy. One was available from a seller in the UK who supposedly had a good name but he wasn't posting due to the cold weather so I asked him to let me know when he'd be posting again, never heard back. The same seller has advertised a female recently but never responded to my contact. Basically I had begun to think I'd never get one until a couple of weeks ago I found what I was looking for on spidersonline.pl but he wasn't posting to the UK because of the weather. Last night I just happened to look on their site and from Monday they will begin sending again.

    So at long last after 4 years of waiting I've bought a Plesiopelma longisternale and it should with luck be here in the next week or 2. :D:D:D

    Unrelated, but how do you post images not saved to your computer? (I use Chromebook)

    Gratz on finding yet another t I have never heard of. I'm pretty sure 50% of your collection is unique and unheard of to many collectors

    It's hard when googling species as you get some let's say interesting results. Am I right in thinking it looks similar to H Chilensis but with an extended red/orange on abdomen? If that's the one then it looks adorable. Very nice find

    The 1st picture I saw it was pretty much all blue but most more recent pictures show with quite a lot of red. We shall see what happens with this little one :)

    I agree. If I want to see something new I just take a look at Enn’s posts. I can’t believe how many you have that probably just don’t make it across the pond.

    Well against all expectations with the Easter holiday, my new little Plesiopelma longisternale arrived today only taking 6 days.
