Hi,
They both look like Poec. subfusca to me. It seems to be "IN" to have different forms of certain species..

The difference is about 10'C - if I keep the top spider in similar conditions to the bottom the top one stops feeding burries under the peat and "hibernates".

So the difference between 'high' and 'low' form is maybe in conditions you keep them?
You think that maybe ordinary subfusca('high' form) would become 'low' (different colour, more black and bigger) if you keep it in warmer conditions-from a sling?
Just a thought.
Nice male btw!


Best regards Uros

Hi everyone,
My female has no purple on her anymore, she's just black and white. Do all female P. subfuscas loose their purple sheen as they grow? smile.gif

I kept my first communal group of "lowland" subfusca cool and humid in conditions similar to those described by Jacobi in Arachnoculture/ Smith in BTS journal. They did not thrive - they merely huddled together under the peat, for about a year.Once they were kept in warmer conditions they started to behave "normally". I have kept subsequent groups at these warmer temperatures and they thrive and grow at a similar rate to "highland" subfusca at the cooler temps.

I'd love a P.Metallica, they're stunning.
How much do slings go for normally and does anyone have any for sale?
I've seen 3" available for £120, but I really enjoy raising them from slings.
