I purchased her as a P. machala. She is roughly 6+" in leg span. Pictured in natural lighting. Person I purchased from states it has been a year or so since her last molt.
looks light in colour to me? No expert on this species and this is the best pic I have atm of a P machala AF I have Will try to get a better one tomorrow
She is gorgeous, Steve. I've had them before and they look just like yours but I've never had an AF so I'm not sure how their color pattern changes (if at all). I know some get more dull in color and turn brown, etc. pre-molt....
Thanks, Steve. I will definitely check her out when she molts. I will also post some pics a few hours after she molts, as well for comparison to other machalas. I've never seen a pampho with leg coloration like hers. Closest I've seen is mascara but I know color pattern changes throughout molt cycles and with age.Adult females loose all the purple/mauve as they mature but spermathecae comparison might help when she molts
