I too have a grown on sling of this species, although I never see it because it lives in a network of tunnels in it's container!

Does anyone have any information on these as I find it hard to find images and articles on this spider.

Apart from yours Chris, this is the first time I've seen anyone else with one.

hello,

I have for you a one question: Is Coremiocnemis sp. Malay synonym by Lyrognathus robustus or no?

I read a one article by V.V. Wirth in "The Tarantula" journal and he written as though Coremiocnemis sp. Malay isn´t synonym by Lyrognathus robustus but as though this is independent kind, is this true?

thank you for answer.

Regards

A.

Do the large bushy back legs of these spiders have any special uses like possibly for burrowing or mabey even for defensive purposes?I'm really interested to learn more about them.
heres one more photo from yesterday :]

No unfortunately our breeding stock has all died. In my experience L. robustus is a very fragile spider that are easily stressed and as a consequence are difficult to settle in captivity. I believe that the best way to establish a healthy stable breeding group would be to base it on wc spiderlings which are generally easier to adapt to captivity than adults in my experience with other difficult species. I still hope to be able to establish a breeding group of L. robustus at some time, but as my situation is right now my focus is elsewhere ;-)

Søren

Hi Chris ;-) Looks like a subadult male you got there? ;-) If so be prepared for a beautiful sight of pink and black ;-)

I hope you have females of a decent size as well? Also when you breed this species remember that it is a highland species that will need a pronounced shift in the yearly climate cycle to trigger egg laying. Check out the hydrotherm figures for Shillong to get an idea of the parameters you need to twist ;-)

Søren

Hello Soren,
ahh I hope its not a male hehe.This one pictured here is more than double the size of all the others I have in my breeding group.I purchased this one from someone who was feeding alot more than me so most of my others are still quite small.
I will say the males are very impressive looking tho!Cant wait to see one in person.

Reason I believe it is a male is the swollen bases on the palpal tarsi. This is usually indicative of a penultimate male.

HI

i have 5 females from wildcaught (2 subadults and 3 adults) and about 20 (from 4 differnt cocoons) spiderlings/juveniles all born in my home

last year , i have had only 3 spiderlings with this species cry.gif

To my opinion, it s not a fragile species (no dead specimen since i have them) but difficult to breed because they need quiet and temperatures not so high

Chris, i m interested by your male if you don t need wink.gif

I see Chris Hamilton in 2 weeks at the lecture and i have the Lampropelma nigerrimum for you
I have also Cyriocomus but don t remember if it s for you or for Chris H

very best regards

PS: i have 3 eggsacs of Coremiocnemis tropix , hope at east 1 of them is good smile.gif

JM
