Cyclosternum fasciatum is a species of a new-world tarantula native to Costa Rica. Also known as Costa Rican Tiger Rump, its maximum legspan of 12 centimetres (4.7 in) makes it a rather small tarantula species, yet it is one of the largest of its genus. Male adults have tibial hooks on the front pair of their legs.
Ranges from tropical forests of Costa Rica and Guatemala. Stunning burrowing species. Spiderlings are very small and prey on micro crickets and fruit flies.
